|Wendy currently resides with her husband and
two children in Stillwater, Minnesota. Her philosophy in regards
to photography focuses on uncovering the unseen, the overlooked,
the miracle in the mundane. She believes photographs should
not be "of" things, but "about" them. Images
should tell a story through the nuances of light, focus, shadow,
detail, texture and distance in a way the eye in its haste would
not otherwise see. Wendy Woods tries to capture these nuances
through a variety of photographic formats, including use of
infrared, color, and black and white. She employs the use of
digital photography exclusively because it is environmentally
Her career also branched to the other side of the camera.
1980 through 1988 she worked as a reporter and anchor for
CNN, KGO-TV, and "The Computer Chronicles" on PBS.
In 1983 she founded and has served as editor-in-chief for
online news service "Newsbytes," which was purchased
by The Washington Post in 1997. Throughout these
years, she continued to explore photography. One of her largest
projects was photographing every child at the Laurel Hill
Preschool using a medium format camera, processing and printing
all the portraits on a custom basis, in San Francisco in 1992.
