Jill Greenberg’s End Times is a series of photography featuring toddlers in various states of distress. It reflects Jill’s frustration with the Bush administration and Christian Fundamentalism. When the work was first shown in 2006, it was the subject of controversy even though the method for getting children to cry was harmless (by offering children candy and taking it away).
In 2013, we worked with Jill and curator Paul Wombell to make a book with the purpose of bringing credibility and focus to the work by drawing on the political commentary more overtly. Our design direction mixed Jill’s photographs with images of front page headlines during the George W. Bush years, each on a different type of paper stock. The design also referenced the typographic conventions of newspapers.
