Jill Greenberg Photography

The Rapture


While looking up Charlie White, I reacquainted myself with her series End Times
I found this and good images on the Paul Kopeikin Gallery site:

"End Times" combines beautiful, poignant imagery, impeccably executed, with both political and personal relevance. Greenberg’s subject is taboo: children in pain. She utilizes this uncomfortable image as a way to break through to the pop mainstream and begin a national dialogue. Jill Greenberg's images are sharp and saturated, stunning and quirky; her work is soaked with realism and imagination.

How did she do it you ask? She would give the kids candy, then snatch it away to get these agonizing pictures!
