This wont be my only blog about emotion captured in photography, but today I decided to start it off with Jill Greenberg. She has an exhibition called the "End Times". She is known as the "manipulator" because she provokes the children by taking away their candies or toys. Cruel I know lol, but the emotion that she captures within their faces is priceless. It is said that this series was created to portray her helplessness and anger that she felt about the current political and social situation, being Bush's re-election and the whole Bush administration as a whole. It is interesting that she used the children to portray her thoughts of society. Maybe somewhat genius.
