a room



this room is this bedroom two years later. muhamid ali and michael jordan are now hanging on the wall, along with the outkast poster.
snoop dog with his dogs, and the wwe day of reckoning2 poster are new arrivals. the nike's are worn out. i do not know where the easter dog resides, nor it's owner. but this is now the room where his newly born baby sleeps, occasionally, in a bed butted next to my sister, her grandma.

where generations meet

about Wendaferd

I was born to a carpenter and an artist/activist/homemaker in Indiana, right smack-dab in the middle of the middle class and white America. I am number 7 of 8. On a really good day my mother called me Wendaferd. I have a sidekick, his name is Willie. On a really good day he calls me Darlin'. I have three caged birds and they still sing, and a dog named Birdi. I am an artist and the founder of SUGAR. My photographs explain what I am thinking. The image becomes a drawing of my conclusions. Within the captured moment lie my notions and opinions about the world I live. Cropping happens in the lens, eliminating unnecessary words, while enriching others that remain within the frame. I trust my instincts and intuitions as if they were logic. Gwendolyn Charlene Skaggs
