Lloyd Godman was lecturer in charge of photography at the School of Art. Otago Polytechnic, Dunedin, New Zealand from 1986 until 2005 where he established a department that was highly regarded for its explorative approach to photography, and in particular alternative photographic processes. From 1989, his art practice has centered on the phenomenon of light and a wide range of photosensitive emulsions (including plants and photosynthesis) and camerless photography through the use of photograms. In Aproian Emulsions he utilizes alternative photo-emulsions like Cyanotype and Van Dyke Brown in a plastic manner, where the confines of the rectangle are broken and the liquid flows as marks and motifs. Rather than a fault, aberrations in the process are embraced as an aesthetic device that strengthens the concept of the work.
