Beverly Johnson, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and Cheryl Tiegs

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.

"I looked at the time and I knew: 7:30 - this guy wasn't going to get up that early." 

Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, who is on the telephone from New York, has just said this to an interviewer situated on the west coast.  His prediction came true.

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.”

Making The Black List

When Timothy Greenfield-Sanders was taking promotional photographs for Toni Morrison's first opera, "Margaret Garner", back in 2005, the Nobel Prize-winning writer suggested that he shoot a portfolio of black divas. Greenfield-Sanders liked the idea, but he had something broader in mind. He asked his friend Elvis Mitchell, a journalist and critic, to help him think of subjects for a portrait series.
