    Timothy Greenfield-Sanders: The Latino List

    Exhibition Didactics ?
    • Timothy Greenfield-Sanders (American, born 1952), a photographer and filmmaker, is best known for his intimate portraits of world leaders and major cultural figures and his documentary about the musician Lou Reed, which won a Grammy Award in 1998. Greenfield-Sanders’s film and photography career started in the mid-1970s, when he attended the American Film Institute in Los Angeles and began photographing visiting luminaries for the school, including Alfred Hitchcock, Bette Davis, and Ingmar Bergman. In 1979 Greenfield-Sanders moved to New York City and began to photograph the art world. Full sets of the 700 portraits of artists, dealers, critics, collectors, and curators that he made over the next twenty years are now in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. To date, fifteen books and catalogues have been published on Greenfield-Sanders’s portraiture.

      Timothy Greenfield-Sanders: The Latino List is organized by Lisa Small, Curator of Exhibitions, Brooklyn Museum.

    • These twenty-five large-format portrait photographs taken by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders feature accomplished and influential Latinos from the worlds of culture, politics, business, and sports. On view nearby are excerpts from the accompanying documentary film, also called The Latino List, directed by Greenfield-Sanders with interviews conducted by Maria Hinojosa and additional interviews by Sandra Guzman, both Emmy Award–winning journalists. In this film, some of the people in the photographs are seen and heard directly sharing their own revealing stories and experiences as Latinos in America. In the manner of The Black List Project, Greenfield-Sanders’s 2008 exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum that offered insights on what it means to be African American in contemporary society, the vivid portraits and filmed monologues of The Latino List collectively explore the meaning of “Latino” in the twenty-first century and illuminate the richness and diversity of Latino life in America.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
