World-famous celebrity photographer and documentary filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders has an eclectic collection of interests. His newest project, About Face, premieres on HBO on July 30. The doc looks at the lives of famous top models, including Isabella Rossellini, Christie Brinkley and Jerry Hall.
 
Greenfield-Sanders is also known for his XXX 30 Porn-Star Portraits, an examination of porn through pictures and essays. It includes photos of naked and fully clothed pornstars, including Chad Hunt.   
 
“I included gay people in that and gay pornstars, and at the time . . . even publishers questioned it,” Greenfield-Sanders says in an interview shot in Toronto during the Hot Docs festival. “And I said, No no, this is part of this view of sexuality; we are absolutely going to have gay people in it.”
 
Greenfield-Sanders is working on a new documentary focusing on the gay world. It is made in the same vein as his documentaries The Black List and The Latino List. The LGBT list includes interviews with Ellen DeGeneres and Dustin Lance Black.
 
In the interview below, Greenfield-Sanders talks about his projects and how Tennessee Williams once took a special interest in him.
