About Lindsay Godin
Lindsay Godin was born in May of 1992. She was raised in the countryside of Hunterdon County, located in west-central New Jersey. She developed a liking for photography and design in her early adolescence, and started refining her skills working at a local photography studio during her senior year of high school. After high school, she attended East Stroudsburg University and graduated Summa Cum Lauda majoring in Art & Design with a minor in Media Communications (Photography Track).
Following graduation, Lindsay applied and was accepted into the 2014 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. While applying to MFA programs the following year, Lindsay continued the development of her artistic skills by completing a Post-Bachelors Digital Photography Certificate in 2015 at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
Lindsay is a recent graduate from the University of Iowa MA/MFA Dual Degree Program in Studio Arts. She has a primary concentration in Photography, with a minor concentration in Graphic Design. Within her three year graduate teaching assistantship, she has taught a total of 9 sections of digital photography for both BFAs and non-majors, in addition to 1 section of graphic design for non-majors.
In June, 2017, Lindsay was the recipient of the PDN's 2017 Photo Annual Award for student work. She was one of two graduate students featured at Midwest Region SPE with her work entitled "History Is Written By The Winner". Her photographic images are on permanent collection at the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo, NY and the Lehigh Valley Center in Bethlehem, PA. Her recent work has been published in the Photo District News (PDN), YET Magazine, and Ain't-Bad Magazine. Across the country, she has had her work exhibited at 25+ other shows and conferences since 2014.
Lindsay enjoys the academic environment, teaching college students and pursuing her scholarship in the fine arts. Her career goal is to land a tenured-track position at a College/University Department of Art where she can continue to pursue her passion of teaching and producing exemplary works of art.
