Review-A-Day

"It's obviously easier to protect animals we can anthropomorphize. I don't know that Greenberg had this in mind, but the connection one feels with her monkeys and apes is powerful....You may buy this book for laughs. But don't be surprised by the deeper feelings provoked by the expressions of these marvelous, unpredictable creatures who gaze back at us without the mask of self-consciousness." Melanie Stetson Freeman, The Christian Science Monitor (read the entire CSM review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We share about 98 percent of our DNA with chimpanzees, our closest biological cousins. And never have the similarities between simians and humans been so amusingly and brilliantly captured as in Monkey Portraits.

Jill Greenberg has spent 15 years photographing celebrities — from Clint Eastwood to Drew Barrymore — for leading publications, but has recently focused on actors of a different sort. She has been photographing monkeys and apes, many of whom have appeared on film or in television shows. Her intimate portraits of these animals convey a startling range of emotions and personalities, and evoke an almost eerie sense of recognition. Each of these 76 amazingly anthropomorphic photographs will remind you of someone you know. These monkeys in all their glory will cause you to laugh out loud and to wonder just how different we truly are.

Synopsis:

Greenberg offers a fascinating, funny, and all-too-human collection of celebrity monkey and ape portraits. Each of these 76 amazing anthropomorphic photographs will remind readers of someone they know.

Synopsis:

Award-winning photographer Mark Nixon has created a trove of quirky and nostalgic portraits of teddy bears and other stuffed animals that have been lovingly abused after years of play. MuchLoved collects 60 of these images along with their accompanying background tales. An exhibit in the photographerand#8217;s studio led to a small sensation on the Internet when a few of the pictures circulated unofficially on scores of blogs and on many legitimate news sites. Viewers have been intrigued by the funny, bittersweet images and their ironic juxtaposition of childhood innocence and aged, loving wear and tear.and#160; When you see these teddy bears and bunnies with missing noses and undone stuffing, you canand#8217;t help but think back to childhood and its earliest companions who asked for nothing and gave a lot back.

Praise for Much Loved:

and#147;Much Loved is impossibly endearing in its entirety.and#8221; and#151;Brain Pickings
