Documentary.org talks to photographer turned director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders about his PBS American Masters documentary, The Boomer List about the last of the baby boomers to turn 50.

He says, "I always believed that, when you looked at my portraits that were hanging in galleries or museums, people could look at them for a while and get something out of them. Then I always thought, If they could talk to you it would be even more interesting. I wanted to light everyone the same way as that. Over the years I think I've developed a very personal, distinctive style of portraiture. It's a single light source. It's a very clean background. It's never about the setup or my fancy lighting. It's always about the subject. That's what works."
