Jill Greenberg’s Monkey Portraits 2011 Wall Calendar

Three  of my favorite photographers are Jill Greenberg, Dave Hill, and Erwin Olaf. All of them have a  newer style of photography known to many as ”hyper realistic.” Their sites will collectively waste a  couple hours of your time browsing around. Make sure to check out the videos of Dave Hill to see behind the scenes footage.

Jill Greenburg has one of my personal favorites for 2011. This one is titled, Monkey Portraits. She began her work with Monkey Portraits in 2001.

Bio snippet from Jill’s site:

Since the age of 10, Jill Greenberg has been staging photographs and creating characters using the mediums of drawing, painting, sculpture, film and photography. Her work displays her unique perspective with a clear voice, apparent through her distinctive lighting and personally-executed post production.

Betty White’s 2010 Comeback

In early January of 2010, a Facebook group called “Betty White to Host SNL (Please)” urged NBC to have the 88 year old host the show. NBC heard the call, and Betty White hosted on May 8th, 2010.

Her monologue and appearance is an important cultural statement from who many young’ins would call an “elderly person”. By all means, she is far from exuding what that word has come to mean. Here is a quote from her monologue which has piercingly fresh humor and can only be pulled off by a few people:

“I really have to thank Facebook … I didn’t know what Facebook was, and now that I do know what it is, I have to say, it sounds like a huge waste of time. I would never say the people on it are losers, but that’s only because I’m polite…People say ‘But Betty, Facebook is a great way to connect with old friends.’ Well at my age, if I want to connect with old friends, I need a Ouija board. Needless to say, we didn’t have Facebook when I was growing up. We had phonebook…but you wouldn’t waste an afternoon with it.”
