The Black List

"[The Black List] works as a series of living portraits, 21 prominent African Americans offer their own stories and insights on the struggles, triumphs, and joys of black life in the United States ... While filming The Black List, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders invited each participant to sit for a portrait. Shot on his large-format 8 x 10 camera, the images were printed as large-scale color photographs, 58 x 44 inches each. The result is a powerful exhibition making its U.S. museum premiere at the MFAH."

I don't know when I'll find the time to see this, but I'll definitely have to schedule it in. The exhibition will be up until October 26 at MFAH. The film, The Black List, will premiere on HBO on Monday, August 25.
