Lloyd Godman's interest in photosynthesis and regeneration of the bush after fire grew from his engagement in photography and intrigue with photosensitivity. His work with his signature plant family, Bromeliads, stalled in 2005 when he had to sell the plants in New Zealand and begin collecting again in a Australia. On a camping trip to Wilsons Prom, Victoria, he was captivated by the juxtaposition of vibrant green regrowth against the stark blackened tree trunks. The photographs he took provided a visual base that he then extended from with charcoal drawings similar to the Drawing from Nature project of the early 1990s where he mixed photography and drawing.
Equivalence is a transition project that stems from his focus to keep exploring ideas of light and photosynthesis.
