Jill Greenberg “The Manipulator” is one of the more popular photographers of her era, however she is also one of the most controversial ones too. Her exhibit, called End Times, shows photos of various kids crying as if something terrible had happened. The pieces were titled to reflect Greenberg’s frustration with the government and Christian Fundamentalism in the United States.
How does she get these shots, you might ask? One photography enthusiast revealed photographer’s rather cruel way of making her models cry – Greenberg gives them lollipop and then quickly takes it away. Once people realized this, many condemned her for such methods. Others, however, say that kids cry all the time, and there’s no harm in it.
What about you? How far would you go to take a perfect shot?
UPDATE: Unfortunately, photographer requested to remove the pictures. They can still be found on google.
