Monkey Portraits
by Paul Weitz
Publisher's Description
We share about 98 percent of our DNA with chimpanzees, our closest biological cousins. And never have the similarities between simians and humans been so amusingly and brilliantly captured as in Monkey Portraits by celebrity photographer Jill Greenberg.

Jill has spent 15 years photographing everyone from Kelly Osbourne to Clint Eastwood, but has recently focused on photographing stars of a different sort. She has been photographing monkeys and apes, many of whom have appeared on movies or in television shows. Her intimate portraits of these animals convey a startling range of emotions and personalities, and evoke an almost eerie sense of recognition. Each of these 76 anthropomorphic photographs will remind you of someone you know. These monkeys, in all their glory, will make you laugh out loud and wonder just how different we truly are.
