Baby Boomers have been making news from the moment they came of age. In 1966, Time magazine declared American youth “a new kind of generation.”
Born during the post–World War II population explosion from 1946 to 1964, Baby Boomers shook up attitudes about everything from sex to race to politics.
These 19 portraits of trailblazing Baby Boomers — one born each year of the baby boom — capture the depth, diversity and talent of this distinctive generation, and its remarkable impact on our society and culture.
Award-winning photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’ images and interviews provide a revealing look at one of the most talked-about generations in history.
Greenfield-Sanders’ decision to create The Boomer List was decided after the last Baby Boomer turned fifty. This list includes one person from each year which have inspired, diversified, and those which have contributed to defining this generation. The exhibition, which is in conjunction with AARP, will be on exhibit at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts from April 7, 2017 to June 10, 2017.
