MORRISTOWN, NJ.- The Morris Museum opened its newest exhibit, “The Boomer List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders,” featuring 19 large-format portraits of influential baby boomers — one born each year of the baby boom, from 1946 to 1964. Award-winning photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders (“The Black List,” “The Latino List” and “The Out List”) chose as his subjects boomers who reflect the depth, diversity and talent of their generation. The exhibit, created by the Newseum in Washington, D.C. in partnership with AARP, is on display at the Morris Museum through September 10, 2018.

Baby boomers have had a profound impact on the world, shaking up attitudes about sex, race and politics, and leaving their mark on everything from science and technology to art and music. The 19 men and women selected for “The Boomer List” are:

1946: Tim O’Brien, Vietnam veteran/author
1947: Deepak Chopra, M.D., New Age guru
1948: Samuel L. Jackson, actor
1949: Billy Joel, singer/songwriter
1950: Steve Wozniak, co-founder, Apple Computer
1951: Tommy Hilfiger, fashion designer
1952: Amy Tan, author
1953: Eve Ensler, playwright
1954: Julieanna Richardson, founder, The HistoryMakers
1955: Maria Shriver, journalist
1956: Kim Cattrall, actress
1957: Virginia Rometty, CEO, IBM
1958: Ellen Ochoa, Director, Johnson Space Center
1959: Ronnie Lott, athlete
1960: Erin Brockovich, environmentalist
1961: Peter Staley, AIDS activist
1962: Rosie O’Donnell, entertainer
1963: David LaChapelle, artist
1964: John Leguizamo, actor

"Someday, the history of the Boomer generation will be written and rewritten many times" said Dr. Cleveland Johnson, Executive Director of the Morris Museum. "Until then, the photography of Timothy Greenfield-Sanders gives us already a revealing look at 19 Boomers who loom large today in that evolving story."

“The Boomer List” also includes an original Newseum-produced film featuring the photographer’s stories about the project, and features a scent station with memorable aromas familiar to the baby boom generation. The station includes whiffs of baby powder, to represent the 76 million-plus babies born between 1946 and 1964; fresh-cut grass, a reminder of the boomers’ move to the suburbs; and incense, evoking the musky smell of rebellion, flower power and love-ins.
