Bear Portraits

Bear Portraits

A top celebrity portrait photographer, Jill Greenberg has a unique ability to coax powerful emotions out of her subjects – whether human or animal. Her portraits of bears, collected here for the first time, surprise and engage. We encounter cubs as cute as a child’s Teddy, grizzlies that look like they might swallow you whole, and Polar bears seated in Sphinx-like tranquility. Full-grown brown bears, grizzlies, black bears, Polar bears, and bear cubs are photographed on location against a portrait backdrop. The poses and facial expressions are at turns oddly comedic, pensive, terrifying, and sometimes unexpectedly human. Alive with Greenberg’s signature lighting and seen through the unique perspective of her lens, these startling bear portraits bring us face to face with our fears and fantasies.
