For years, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders has been exploring the nature of identity through his award-winning “List” portrait series and documentaries, beginning with “The Black List” in 2008 all the way through his upcoming project “The Trans List.” And now viewers will have the opportunity to consider these bodies of work alongside each other in “IDENTITY: Timothy Greenfield-Sanders The List Portraits,” opening September 24 at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles.

“Conceived to illuminate the breakthroughs of marginalized communities, ‘IDENTITY: Timothy Greenfield-Sanders The List Portraits’ comprises 151 uniquely compelling large-format photographs of pioneers in five distinct-but-often-overlapping groups,” explains the museum. “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 also marks the world premiere of Timothy’s “Trans List” portraits, which features prominent transgender individuals including Caitlyn Jenner, Laverne Cox, and Janet Mock. The accompanying documentary will debut December 5 as an HBO Documentary Film.

“It’s one thing to read and talk about the role of race and sexuality and gender identity in our lives,” Cinny Kennard, executive director of the Annenberg Foundation, told the Los Angeles Times. “It’s another thing to turn a powerful, piercing camera lens on people of all races and sexual orientations and identities to get a window into our minds, souls [and] what defines us and divides us and unites us.

“Timothy Greenfield-Sanders is one of the most gifted portrait photographers working today. With these terrific portraits, he teaches us more about identity and self-realization, about how people see themselves and how they strive to be seen, than we can capture in many thousands of words.” (Read the full article here or by clicking on the screenshot below.)

“IDENTITY: Timothy Greenfield-Sanders The List Portraits” will be on view at the Annenberg through February 26. More info here. To learn more about “The Trans List,” visit the Facebook page.

Shoe brand Samuel Hubbard features Doug Menuez in its new campaign

Photographer Doug Menuez stepped to the other side of the lens recently to appear in a new campaign for shoe brand Samuel Hubbard. The ad features a portrait of Doug at his home in Red Hook, New York, and copy that speaks to his peripatetic life as an award-winning image-maker…

“For most people, a day at work doesn’t involve a walk around the North Pole. Or a boat ride down the Amazon. Or a trek across the Sahara in scorching 125-degree heat. It also doesn’t involve embedding oneself in the lives of such people as Bill Clinton, Steve Jobs, and Joseph Stalin’s daughter.

So let us all agree that documentary and commercial photographer Doug Menuez isn’t ‘most people.’ When he takes on an assignment, he sets out to tell a story with his camera, and those stories have him traveling a good 100,000 miles every year. On the road (or river, glacier, or sand), there’s nothing more critical than packing the right equipment.

‘The camera is my tool, but my body is every bit as essential,’ says Doug. ‘So I think of my feet as the engines of my work.’

Shooting real life on the street, those engines often work overtime, with Doug being on his feet 12 to 14 hours a day. So choosing the right shoe is as important as choosing the right camera. In Doug’s words, ‘the comfort of the shoe is directly proportional to the quality of the work.’

While comfort is Concern #1 for Doug, he’s all in favor of style too. With a laugh, he tells the story of one of the young people on the set who let out the spontaneous compliment: ‘I’m digging your shoes, boss.’

For most of his 30 years behind a camera, Doug favored cowboy boots. But once he put on his Hubbards, he never looked back. ‘Simply the most comfortable shoes I’ve  ever worn,’ he says.”
