Lloyd Godman - "the lateral thinker of Australian and New Zealand Photography".
Julie Millowick Daylesford foto biennale 2007


"Lloyd Godman's twin interests of organic gardening and practicing artist of great creative energy converge in new and constantly surprising ways to make art about ecological concerns..Over almost three decades his art has widened out from relatively traditional landscape photography to include elements of performance, audience participation art and multimedia installation to explore the tensions between electronic consumer society and the ecosystem."
Artlink magazine - Ecology: Everyone's Business - Vol 25 no 4 - Dec - Jan 2006

"...the largest photosensitive emulsion we know of is the planet earth. As vegetation grows, dies back, changes colour with the seasons, the "photographic image" that is our planet alters. Increasingly human intervention plays a larger role in transforming the image of the globe we inhabit".
Lloyd Godman - 2006


"Probably the artists who have influenced me the most are Man Ray and Max Ernst, - not so much the work itself but their inquisitive nature where they kept exploring things. I see my work as a means of learning about myself and my relationship to the universe. As both are in flux, my work is also in constant change. So rather than establish a constant and marketable style each series presents a new challenge where I can carry over some artifacts from my past experience and add another new layer."

The energy of light is magic. The magic of light in all its manifestations and meanings is at the critical edge of my work. Light is essential to both photography and photosynthesis, a fusion of the two is a most special spell. Lloyd Godman 2005
