Jill Greenberg’s newest work, Glass Ceiling marks a return to the postmodern feminist theory, which directed her practice throughout the 1990s. In these images, female athletes attempt to pose but the water knocks them into awkward positions. The heels, overtly absurd hinder all movement while underscoring their lack of control. The women’s identities have become inconsequential as their heads are visually cut off, leaving only the bodies in focus – Clearly an analogy for the female experience, clashing beauty, power and violence.artists statementThe Glass Ceiling project is about the “set up” of being a woman. These women are professional athletes and dancers; therefore, they are dressed for work. In 2008, I was commissioned to do a “fashion” shoot using the US Olympic Synchronized Swim Team as models. 2 of the set ups included high heels. Inspired by the shoots outtakes I hired a local synchronized swim troupe in 2010 and directed the women with gestures as I sat at the bottom of a pool in full scuba gear with a state-of-the-art 65 megapixel back on my digital camera. As these athletes attempt to pose for me the water knocks them into awkward positions. The heels are overtly absurd and hinder their movement, amplifying their lack of control in this world. “The disciplinary project of femininity is a setup, it requires such radical and extensive bodily transformation, that a woman is destined in some degree to fail.” This quote by Sandra Lee Bartky was the crux of my senior thesis, “The Female Object” at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1989. At the conclusion of the multimedia presentation that was the “Female Object,” the final projected slide declared “Exit the Powder Room.” It was my assertion that this project of femininity is a self-created distraction from accomplishing more serious goals.”Glass Ceiling” marks for me the return to my explorations throughout the 90′s of the depiction of the female body as if directly channeled from the male psyche. In these images, the identities have become inconsequential as their heads are cut off, the sexualized bodies are the focus. As a female artist, I have experimented with imagery, which explores the objectification of women for many years. First, a series of drawings of women as seen by men, just breasts, vaginas, heels, then a multimedia digital piece called “Eve of the Future” which posited that if man could genetically engineer the woman of his dreams, she would have multiple orifices and no head. This work was acquired as part of a collection by SF MOMA. The images channel the feelings I have of being powerless in a culture run by men. The psychic violence is made pictorially overt. The subjects are victimized despite their physical strength, health and any other good luck they might have been born into. The fact that they had the bad luck of being born women makes them a punchline. The violence in our slang and street vernacular used in discussing women and sexual intercourse makes it apparent that the collective male culture feels aggressively dismissive of women. I felt it was important to show the violence and emotion I feel as a woman in contemporary culture, from a woman’s point of view. The images might be read as violent towards women, they are meant to be. This is what it feels like to exist in the female body.
– Jill Greenberg 2011about the artistSince the age of 10, Jill Greenberg has staged photographs and created characters using the mediums of drawing, painting, sculpture, film and photography. She is known worldwide for her uniquely human animal portraits, which intentionally anthropomorphize her subjects, as well as her infamous series, “End Times” which struck a nerve in its exploration of religious, political, and environmental themes exploiting the raw emotion of toddlers in distress. Her newest work marks a return to the postmodern feminist theory that inspired her senior thesis, “The Female Object” as an art student at RISD in the 80′s: “The disciplinary project of femininity” and the predetermined failure of all women who attempt to “succeed” at it. As a working photographer she travails to straddle the line between assignment work and her own personal work. On one notable occasion, a conflict arose when she was assigned to photograph the Republican candidate for presidency in the summer 2008, at the height of his popularity; after delivering the assignment exactly as requested, she chose to speak out in the form of agit-prop outtakes on her own website, which she was legally allowed and morally compelled to do. The violent backlash from her political art has informed this return to the question of what is tolerated by women in our culture.

Автор фотосерии, наделавшей много шума, с плачущими детками Jill Greenberg не перестает удивлять. “Суть” данных подводных фото, казалось бы, в красивом освещении и гибких телах девушек. Смысл глубже. Эти девушки – профессиональные спортсменки и танцовщицы. И им, как никому, известно, сколько нужно сил, чтобы выполнить на пять с плюсом программу, при этом улыбаться и сохранять женственность и сексуальность. А туфли на каблуке – как главный атрибут этой самой женственности.
Если Jill Greenberg заинтересует вас как фотограф, серии с фотографиями (потрясающими фотографиями!) мишек, обезьянок и лошадей вы можете посмотреть на официальном сайте с описаниями.

Jill Greenberg (ジル·グリーンバーグ) はカナダ生まれのフォトグラファーです。彼女はその並外れたライティングコンセプトとストーリーでよく知られています。彼女のトレードマークともいえるスタイルは、非常に強いライティングと、輝きのあるハイライトです。その写真は、ハイライトを強調しすぎたHDR写真のようにも見えます。彼女はDigital Photo Pro(デジタルフォト専門雑誌)で、写真の編集について、それはまるで一枚の絵を描くようだと言っています。 彼女は、編集前のイメージを撮る為にフィルムカメラも使うそうですが、最終的なイメージはデジタル編集で強調した作品となっています。下のイメージは彼女の一番有名で、物議をかもしている作品のひとつである、「End Times」(終わりの時)という名前がつけられた作品です。

‎Jill Greenberg (ג’יל גרינברג) היא צלמת אמריקאית אשר עוסקת בהצלחה רבה בצילום מסחרי. היא מחזיקה סטודיו מכובד בניו-יורק ובלוס אנג’לס. היא עובדת עם העיתונים הגדולים בעולם ועם לקוחות מהשורה הראשונה מבחינה מסחרית. 
תחום הצילום אשר מאפיין יותר מכל את עבודותיה הוא צילום הפורטרטים. אין ספק שצילומי הפורטרט שלה מעניינים מאוד מבחינה מקצועית (אולם יש כאלו, ואני ביניהם, שיטענו שהיא עושה שימוש מסיבי מידי בעיבוד התמונה בפוטושופ) אך ישנן מספר סדרות מעניינות גם מבחינה אומנותית.
‎אחת הסדרות הללו היא סדרת “הילדים הבוכים”.
