I am intrigued with humanity’s relationship to nature, primarily with our vulnerability when we confront or attempt to conquer our environment. This provocation is expressed with images that capture our own inner turmoil and insignificant mortality when confronted by surroundings more powerful than ourselves. Submersion aims to create an aesthetic experience in which the subject comes face to face with the awe and terror of nature. I was inspired largely by the use of sublimity in the seascapes of two early 19th century Romanticism painters, J.M.W. Turner and Caspar Freidrich. My underwater images have been compared aesthetically to Bill Viola’s “Five Angels for the Millennium”. While similar, my work has more of a focus on the internal turmoil of humanity; whereas, Viola-s focus is on transcendence.
I attempt to modernize sublimity by capturing my subjects in unconventional settings. I use the natural element of water as my backdrop, and I intensify the tumultuous experience by integrating violent submersion, strong underwater backlighting and visual abstractions. In Submersion, I exhibit an underwater perspective that sharply juxtaposes human with the vast space of dark water, signifying humankind’s intense and deep, never ending dark battle within.
Lindsay Godin attended East Stroudsburg University where she graduated in 2014 Summa Cum Laude majoring in Art & Design with a minor in Media Communications (Photography Track). Following graduation, Lindsay applied and got accepted in 2014 into the Summer Residency at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. This was an exceptional experience where her photographic work was critiqued by nationally acclaimed photographers who encouraged her to continue her training with a MFA. This past year she applied to graduate schools, while continuing the development of her artistic skills by completing a Post-Bachelors Digital Photography Certificate at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Lindsay has had her work placed on permanent display at the Lehigh Center in Bethlehem, PA and the Chancellors Building in Harrisburg, PA. In fall, 2015 Lindsay will be attending the University of Iowa MFA program in Studio Arts, with a primary concentration in Photography, and a minor concentration in Graphic Arts. With her graduate teaching assistantship, she will be teaching digital photography for non-majors, and introduction to digital photography for BFA students.
