Monkey Portraits

Last week I read, or rather looked at, an awesome book. It is called Monkey Portraits by Jill Greenberg. Jill, a photographer, decided to take portraits of various primates. Many of the monkey's that are used in her book have also been featured in movies or tv. Other than the foreward, there is very little text in the book. I was struck not only by the clarity and lighting in the pictures but by the humanistic expressions on the monkeys. If you get a chance, I would highly recommend taking a look at this book.
