We keep Jill here cause, well she just deserves it in our opinion
Jill Greenberg's children - The picture above metaphorically depicts our version of children devoured by Greenberg's political agenda. They were not crying to make a political statement, they cried when Greenberg took their clothes off and gave them candy then took it away. They were not crying because Bush was reelected, they were not making a political statement that's dumb. They were hysterical because they were used and eaten up by a shark with her own self serving motives, Jill Greenberg.

Jill Greeberg's explanation for the kid photo shoot. (Pics below)
How did you come up with the idea for the project?
I saw this little girl who'd come to a party with her mom, and she was beautiful, so I thought it might be interesting to photograph her. When they came to my studio, the mother brought along her toddler son, and I decided to shoot him too. We took off his shirt because it was dirty. He started crying on his own, and I shot that, and when I got the contact sheets back I thought, "This could go with a caption, 'Four More Years,'" like he was appalled at George Bush's reelection. The images have a real powerthey immediately get under your skin. The emotion you see is just so compelling,... I also thought they made a kind of political statement about the current state of anxiety a lot of people are in about the future of the country. Sometimes I just feel like crying about the way things are going.
How did you get the kids to cry?
Mostly we did it by giving them something, a lollypop, and then taking it away.
Gary Pearlman's Commentary - Jill, why did you shoot the other 34 kids with their shirts off? What makes you think crying children are making a statement - any statement other than give me my lollipop back? How many crying babies do you know that are "appalled" by the President of the United States. Hey Jill a kid crying over a lollipop you gave and took is not a political statement against Bush or anxiety it is a kid who hates your guts for taking his lollipop. If you feel like crying what the heck why not take some kids down with you. After all like you said "Kid models aren't very expensivenot as expensive as monkeys, for example." Go for the cheap buck Jill your first class all the way.
Jill you look stressed, you sure the anxiety is from outside events not from inner demons? Not that you look possessed, no you look very normal Jill
"We expected Jill Greenberg, like the other photographers we work with, to behave professionally.Jill Greenberg has obviously not done that. She has, in fact, disgraced herself, and we are appalled by the manipulated images she has created for her Web site of John McCain." Statement from James Bennet, editor of The Atlantic
After getting a normal shot of McCain, Greenberg asked McCain to please come over here for one more set-up before the 15-minute shoot was over. There, she had a beauty dish with a modeling light set up. Thats what he thought he was being lit by, Greenberg says. But that wasnt firing.
What was firing was a strobe positioned below him, which cast the horror movie shadows across his face and on the wall right behind him. He had no idea he was being lit from below, Greenberg says. And his handlers didnt seem to notice it either. I guess theyre not very sophisticated... I am a pretty hard core Democrat. Some of my artwork has been pretty anti-Bush, so maybe it was somewhat irresponsible for them [The Atlantic] to hire me."
Commentary - I call this picture Taking Responsibility, another character trait the "hardcore" Mrs Greenberg missed out on.
Life can wear on us all Jill some of us just handle it better than others. From the way I see you your not wearing it well!
The secret is out Jill, as the Chinese proverb says, "People wear masks to hide their true identity and by doing so actually reveal it." You're not a high minded moralist your a predatory back stabbing self absorbed jerk.
The capacity to lie has also been claimed to be possessed by non-humans in language studies with Great Apes. One famous case was that of Koko the gorilla; confronted by her handlers after a tantrum in which she had torn a steel sink out of its moorings, she signed in American Sign Language, "cat did it," pointing at her tiny kitten. It is unclear if this was a joke or a genuine attempt at blaming her tiny pet. Deceptive body language, such as feints that mislead as to the intended direction of attack or flight, is observed in many species including wolves. A mother bird deceives when it pretends to have a broken wing to divert the attention of a perceived predator -- including unwitting humans -- from the eggs in its nest to itself.
The abuse debate revolving around the Greenberg pictures encapsulated below has been brought into focus now that she has maliciously manipulated the McCain pictures as well. It is now apparent that Jill Greenberg uses the weak and the powerful both without regard for either. The hero and the innocent both are abused by her for her own self serving purpose. McCain was lied to tricked and abused, does anybody disagree? The question of abuse has come into focus with the addition of McCain and Greenberg has been exposed. The amazing thing is the blithe way she has embraced the situation, actually reveling in her baseness. The line has been crossed after McCain and Greenberg should be shunned for what she is an abusive shark willing to devour anybody whether old or young to satisfy her hunger for self gratification.
This is what Jill Greenberg did to one John McCain picture. Remember she was hired and trusted by Atlantic Magazine to shoot a picture of McCain for their magazine. Both Atlantic and McCain trusted her as is normally the case. We again felt her picture needed some commentary built in. The shark with the knife shaking McCain's hand in the picture is ours but the real shark is Jill Greenberg who eagerly and with pride stabbed them in the back. Would you hire her? Would you buy a magazine with her work?
There are more Greenberg photo's of McCain most with comments. Each in its own way speaks louder about Jill Greenberg than they do of anyone else and what they say about her is not good.
