WendyAnn Williams is an artist who uses photographs to document people, places, and personal narratives. Her standard medium is the portrait,and works from the conviction that a portrait is a meaningful narrative series of photographs made with respect for the art and the individual. She believes there are multiple truths represented in each image because it provides and confronts constructive realities, even when our eyes are easily deceived, this is depending on the viewer, and the context in which it is represented. WendyAnn was born on the island of Trinidad & Tobago in 1968. She always had a love for the art and was inspired by father at a very young age but never pursued it because the art was too expensive. When migrated to the US, she began her studies at Manhattan Community College and continued at Hunter College, in which she received her BA in Psychology 2013. While studying at CUNY she took some photography classes which reignited her passion for the art. And with her DSLR camera gifted to her by her husband, started a life long dream. Since then she has been taking photographs as a hobby, documenting life. Her long term goal is a commitment to the principle medium, portraits, to a place and to a community. With a desire to work with human rights organizations in creating a series of meaningful portraits documenting displaced and marginalized communities around the world. In hopes that her projects be can be used in communities, exhibited and distributed worldwide.
