Conceived to illuminate the breakthroughs of marginalized communities, IDENTITY: Timothy Greenfield-Sanders The List Portraits is comprised of 151 uniquely compelling large-format photographs of pioneers in five distinct-but-often-overlapping groups. Each installment (The Black List, The Latino List, The Women’s List, The Out List and The Trans List) calls attention to cultural progress as exemplified by the stories of its subjects, people who have overcome obstacles to achieve success in disparate walks of life. This is the first time the full series can be seen in its entirety.
The exhibition includes the world premiere of The Trans List, the latest installment in Greenfield-Sanders’ ongoing series. This new collection is a curation of 40 intimate and revealing photographs of members of the transgender community. The Trans List will also debut as an HBO Documentary Film on December 5th, 2016.
IDENTITY: Timothy Greenfield-Sanders /The List Portraits offers a refreshing and deeply engaging look into race, gender, class, sexuality and ethnicity in America.
