Was watching "Inside Edition" just a bit ago, and there was a story about a photographer, Jill Greenberg, whose latest project concerns a group of children...was rather intrigued by the story, so went online to look for more info, found several things...like this from one man's blog:
"Jill Greenberg, for anyone who has not yet noticed, is exhibiting a series of close-up portraits of children under three years of age who are miserably, frightfully upset. (You too can view them here.) Ms. Greenberg has claimed that she made the toddlers cry by giving them a lollipop and then taking it away, a standard method for drawing tears among the young in Hollywood. We can all agree that children get upset by things that we would deem trivial, that artists are masters of illusion, and that there is no reason to suspect physical abuse occurred when shooting these photographs. But it seems clear, to myself and to many others, many of us parents, that the project clearly involved provoking children to a level of duress that goes far beyond the norm."
(here are a few of the pics--see the rest by clicking on link above)

While I'm not sure what to think, I do find her method rather disturbing.
p.s. edited to add: Jill Greenberg has another exhibit on the same page of monkeys--be sure to check it out...they are awesome pics!
