The in his skin project, now presents a talk with ted:
001: What is your name and where do you currently reside ?
T - Ted Wimbush and I live in Charlotte, NC.
002: Who influences your life the most ?
T - God
003: What is your purpose in life?
T - My purpose is to create, may sound cliche but I really don't focus on anything else.
004: What are your thoughts on the place that black men hold in society?
T - Black men are kings, we are the most feared species on this earth.
005: What do you hope for people to gather from your work?
T - I hope that people start to appreciate god's creation without today's twisted idea of beauty. I shoot all of my models natural and I dont take away any "flaws" on their bodies. I'm a realist.
006: How has love helped you become a stronger man?
T - Love makes me do nothing more than appreciate the time I have on this earth to create more things with my loved ones beside me along the way. They support me the most.
007: When did you realize that you were comfortable in your own skin?
T - When someone else accepted it just as much as I did.
008: What do you love most about being a man of color ?
T - Being able to prove myself. Being able to be a part of such a strong culture.
009: Name some lessons that a woman has taught you. . .
T - To appreciate what you have. To understand what they have to bring to the table. I can lower my pride and say this would be a terrible place without the nurturing that we get from women. They do some things men just can't do, vice versa.
