Material Light

Source, C-Type prints, 2011

Helen Goodin’s work is predicated on her interest in light and the photographic medium as a scientific process. In Source, Goodin carries out extensive experimentation with light and colour filtration in the analogue darkroom, resulting in a series of photograms. Each photogram is a slight variation in the frequency of light the paper is exposed to, with the resulting colours exploring the subtle variations in the surface of the photographic paper in relation to the changing nature of light.

Helen Goodin is a British artist based in Cambridge. She graduated from the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, with an MFA in Photography. After graduating, she was selected for The Photographers’ Gallery Fresh Faced and Wild Eyed (2012) and is currently mentored by Susan Derges.
