They're not the easiest models to work with. They refuse to sit still. They pee on the floor. They bite. But something about monkeys and apes captivates Los Angeles photographer Jill Greenberg, which is why she continues to explore her specialty of primate portraiture. "I think it's just reminded me that I don't take myself too seriously, and I don't think any of us should," the 39-year-old Greenberg says. "We're all silly monkeys."

STEAL a toddler's lollipop and he's bound to start bawling, was photographer Jill Greenberg's thinking. So that's just what Greenberg did to illicit tears from the 27 or so 2- and 3-year-olds featured in her latest exhibition, "End Times," recently at the Paul Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles. The children's cherubic faces, illuminated against a blue-white studio backdrop, suggest abject betrayal far beyond the loss of a Tootsie Pop; sometimes tears spill onto naked shoulders and bellies.

HOW ironic. Jill Greenberg decides the best way to show how corrupt and greedy our government and corporations are is to make little children cry, take pictures of them and then sell them for big bucks ["Taking More Than Candy," by Steven Barrie-Anthony, July 24]. What a hypocrite! Maybe she should pick on someone her own size. But then it might not be so easy to make them cry. Hey! I know! She could show them her photos of these crying, innocent children. It made me sad to think how mean and manipulative adults can be to get what they want.

If "celebrity photographer shoots monkeys" sounds a little high-concept even for Hollywood, all we can say is, the apes look just fabulous. In her stylized images of the famous and the entertaining, artist Jill Greenberg, whose website is titled www.manipulator.com, often employs digital enhancements that blur the line between photorealist painting and staged photo fantasias of the Annie Leibovitz school.

Art thrives on contrast, as the old saw goes, which gives it tension and momentum. With that in mind, photographer Jill Greenberg couldn't have picked a better subject: bears. As symbols, Ursidae are rife with contradiction. For Jungians, they represent the uncontrollable, warrior side of the unconscious; for Native Americans, they represent diplomacy, healing and, in some cases, the feminine. They're the symbol for California and the emblem of Russia, yet also represent a failing economy.

Up-AND-COMING photographers from New York and L.A. met last week at Smashbox Studios' 12th annual Face Off show, a judged exhibition spotlighting the work of photo assistants from both coasts. The setting -- a SoHo loft-like studio space at Smashbox's recently acquired West Hollywood compound -- was more Manhattan than Hollywood, though a well-dressed cadre of local art fans, models and photo industry executives turned out to toast the fresh crop of talent.

Former Obama administration environmental advisor Van Jones will address an art show and protest training event in L.A. on Saturday titled " All in for the 99% . " The founder of the green economy organization Green for All, as well as several other advocacy groups focused on civil rights, Jones was tapped as a policy advisor on green jobs, enterprise and innovation for Obama's Council on Environmental Quality. He resigned in September 2009 after Republicans in Congress began attacking his past affiliations, none of which had to do with his environmental work but which included a signed petition questioning if the Bush administration had purposely allowed the 9/11 attacks as a pretext to war*, his advocacy for death row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal, and a one-time involvement with a Bay Area radical group.

With the possible exception of surf, sand and sun, none of Mother Nature's handiwork has had a grip on California's imagination quite like the bear--the grizzly to be precise. The bear flag was first raised here in 1846 (though some thought the critter pictured on it looked more like a pig). The bear was added to the state seal in 1849. And it was made the official state animal in 1953.

The image business is getting a new power couple: The trendy Los Angeles photography studio where the Vanity Fair cover of a pregnant and nude Demi Moore was captured is joining forces with its biggest cross-town competitor, which once played host to Snoop Dogg. Smashbox Studios and Quixote Studios, two of Los Angeles' best-known photography houses, will pool their resources to create a new company, starting Dec. 1.

"The West Wing" began its Emmy campaign by collecting four statuettes Saturday during a preliminary nighttime Emmy Awards presentation in Pasadena, pacing NBC to the most trophies of any network. The first-year White House drama claimed awards for casting, theme music, cinematography and art direction during Saturday's event at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, which focused primarily on such technical areas, handing out awards in more than 50 categories.
