From Cedar Pasori’s article for Complex
Jill Greenberg has continually maintained the difficult career balance of commercial and fine art photography, finding great success in both realms. Rarely are contemporary artists able to create their own definitive style with as much grace, technical precision, and imagination as she has. And though many photographers have tried to illegally replicate her work (she has applied for a process patent for the new work), she remains a constant innovator. Her new series, “Paintings,” is not only a brilliant new direction in her work, it’s essentially the invention of a new medium—one that relies on timing and site-specificity to capture light reflecting on wet paint. Paintings are typically based on photographs, but Greenberg instead takes photographs of paint.
