WADE’S WORLD: WELCOME TO ROOM 107
Lyndon Wade’s works offer a peep through the keyhole at the theater of life. He knows people’s natural curiosity and shows us scenes whose span ranges from a moment of silence to one of excess. The stage in each is the same: room 107 of a typical American motel. Wade’s images thrive on their imaginatively over-the-top characters who fill out a very humorous and brilliant panorama of America with their energy.
In his series “Room 107” Lyndon Wade manages to pack entire life stories into single images – stories as absurd, salacious, or comical as he likes. It is pure entertainment in Wade’s world for all of those who have always asked themselves what previous occupants did in the same hotel room. Whether it was the mafia setting the records straight, traveling salesmen reassessing their lives, lonely hearts expelling their last sighs, wedding party’s running riot – Lyndon Wade knows and reports it with piercing clarity from the wild side of life on the edge of an American highway.
Lyndon Wade lives in Kansas City, Missouri, USA, and operates a commercial photography studio RushWade2.
His studio works for clients such as Sony, Virgin, Lee Europe, Emanuel Ungaro, Reebok, Coca Cola, Pepsi, Nestle, Shady (Eminem) Limited, Nintendo, Dodge, Stuff, Maxim, Harper Collins, General Electric, and Bayer through the ad agencies BBDO, Draft FCB, and Saatchi NY. He also photographs regularly for Vibe magazine.
