The Latino List

Installed in this venerable museum’s Great Hall are 25 large-format pigmented ink-jet prints, collectively titled “The Latino List.” Timothy Greenfield-Sanders is recognized for his frontal photographic portraits of prominent figures, including supermodels and porn stars, as well as for films, such as his documentary on the musician Lou Reed. He also shoots for Vanity Fair. For this thoughtful exhibition, Greenfield-Sanders photographed successful Latino men and women from the torso up and set them against seamless gray backgrounds.

Historically, “blacklist” denotes a group of people marginalized and denied work or social approval. In an effort to redefine the term, these portraits of 50 African Americans reclaim the term “blacklist” to be affirming, influential and powerful.
