New York based photographer Jill Greenberg is known internationally for her signature portrait style that has captured both the anthropomorphic sensitivity of animals and the playful, politically-inflected poses of crying children. Greenberg expertly combines artistic intervention with a distinctly editorial aesthetic informed by her concurrent career as a widely successful commercial photographer.
Born in Montreal and raised in Detroit, Greenberg began her artistic career as a student of illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design, but soon switched her focus to photography, graduating with Honours in 1989 alongside a generation of artists who looked to the medium as a platform for political and social commentary. Decorated with awards for both her commercial and fine art photography, Greenberg has since been exhibited worldwide, with her work collected by both private collectors and public institutions, including the Portland Museum of Art and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Greenberg currently lives and works from her studio in New York, NY.
