Still Super

In the art and fashion worlds, many a project begins with a fabulous party. In the case of “Supermodels of the ’70s and ’80s,” the photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’s new exhibition at Steven Kasher Gallery in Chelsea, it was a party thrown by the hairstylist Harry King. “The room was full of all these fabulous women,” the photographer says, “and it seemed an obvious opportunity.”

The Black List Debuts on HBO

Maya Rudolf by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders

BLACK POWER: Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and Elvis Mitchell look pretty prescient right now.

When the two men conceived of “The Black List: Volume One,” Barack Obama hadn’t yet declared his intention to run for president. By the time the film debuted on HBO last August, Obama’s campaign was well under way.

Now, “The Black List: Volume Two” is premiering on HBO tonight, and the concept of a film celebrating the African-American experience takes on new currency.

LENS CRAFTER: Photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders almost skipped the September Seventies and Eighties fashion reunion hosted by his friend, British hairstylist Harry King. But it was there that Greenfield-Sanders found the idea for his next project. As soon as Greenfield-Sanders saw the era’s top models chatting each other up with their progeny, he thought, “This screams Vanity Fair group portrait.

Moving Portraits

Cover

     "My work has always been about serial obsessions." says portrait photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. When he was in his "artist" period, he photographed more than 700 luminaries of the art world over a 20-year span. Then it was musicians - he photographed them by the hundreds. Later he turned his lens on more than 100 fashion designers, and then he fixated on stars of pornography. His latest image obsession is prominent African-Americans.

The Black List

 

Gov. Deval Patrick is blacklisted — and he is in good company.

This month, HBO will release the second volume in its “The Black List” film series, which features prominent African Americans all over the country who are making history. The Bay State’s governor was one of a select few who made this “List,” which will premiere to local audiences at the Strand Theatre in Dorchester on Feb. 18.

“I was honored to be asked,” Patrick said. “I’m in pretty heavy company.”
