Timothy took this of John Updike about ten years ago. RIP
I first heard Eartha Kitt sing "Monotonous" on the cast album of "New Faces of 1952." Years later, on August 10th, 2005 she visited my studio for a portrait. We had tea in the kitchen and discussed Vietnam, LBJ, her efforts to stop that war and how her career suffered as a result. RIP.
Legendary musician Odetta died at age 77.
Timothy photographed her on February 6, 2003
in a makeshift studio in the lobby of Radio City Music Hall.
EDITORIAL: A Powerful Reminder
Thursday, November 27, 2008
As we sit down to our Thanksgiving dinners today, we should take a moment to remember the men and women who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan -- the living as well as the dead.
Part of the current exhibit at the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, "As Others See Us: The Contemporary Portrait," is devoted to reminding us about the human cost of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq.

"The Black List: Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and Elvis Mitchell", opened at the Brooklyn Museum, on November 20th, 2008.
This is the second leg of an ongoing museum tour, organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and sponsored by Credit Suisse.
All 25 portraits taken by Timothy for "The Black List Project" will be in the show. The 44 x 58 inch exhibition prints were made, courtesy of Epson USA. Timothy worked with Gabe Greenberg Editions in New York to create the scans and with Nash Editions in Los Angeles to make the prints.
"They think I’m Jewish,” he says. “I’m in the Jewish book of famous people. But as far as, you know, on the professional level, I think it’s pretty common knowledge that I’m half black or whatever. I was never really fazed by the, sort of, the color barrier, you know?”
As of September 16, 2008
"The Black List" book is in stores nationwide.
