Personal Politics Over Professionalism

How often do we see this occur from the Left? Recall that this isn't the first time Jill Greenberg has stooped to the level of despicability:

This is unbelievably sick. A left-wing photographer, Jill Greenberg, deliberately makes toddlers cry and turns the pictures into a Los Angeles art exhibit called “End Times” to indulge her Bush Derangement Syndrome. She slaps titles like “Grand Old Party,” “Four More Years,” and “Apocalypse Now” onto photos of the poor children she manipulated and goaded.

The Guardian covers the exhibit here with links to the children’s photos and reports how Greenberg deliberately provoked the children to tears:

When photographer Jill Greenberg decided to take a lollipop away from a small child, she had a broader purpose in mind.

“The first little boy I shot, Liam, suddenly became hysterically upset,” the Los Angeles-based photographer said. “It reminded me of helplessness and anger I feel about our current political and social situation.”

As the 27 two- and three-year-olds featured in her exhibition, End Times, cried and screamed, demanding the return of the lollipop given to them just moments before, Greenberg snapped away.

As more than one "artist" has said, anything for art, or for a buck . . . or for political power.

Sheesh! What is WRONG with people?

Jill Greenberg is a real nut -- and a cruel one, at that.

Nothing more than devaluing children. This has been a chronic problem since Roe v Wade

bb-idaho...which childish Dem are you referring to!? (smile)

Sparky..this is quite a story, isn't it? I hope the Atlantic sues the.... out of her..They said they probably would. GOOD.
I remember that child photo incident and was enraged then, when it happened...to see the body of this awful woman's work continues to go downhill is sad yet at least people are finally really waking up to her.

I wasn't upset by the kid photos when they came out. Little kids cry like that when you say, "Bedtime." This is not cruelty.

If she had given the kids a lollipop, snapped happy pictures, then taken the lollipop away, nobody would be upset, even though the result to the kids would have been the same.

But what she did to McCain and to the Atlantic was repulsive, disgusting, unethical, and fraudulent. The Atlantic should sue her into destitution.
