Ellen Goodman lives in the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri with her husband and daughter. She has been developing film and making silver gelatin prints since her Dad built a darkroom in their home in the late 70's/early 80's. This early exposure to the darkroom led to a fascination of live chemical reactions and the energy and connection of things. Initially drawn to landscape photography, her focus shifted to portrait and documentary photography once her daughter was born.
Ellen spearheaded the Film Shooters Collective first group exhibition: "NSEW: Divided by Land, United by Film". The exhibit was on display at the Kranzberg Art Gallery in St. Louis, MO August 5th-27th, 2016.
All B&W shots are developed and by printed by hand in her darkroom. Her camera collection includes: Hasselblad 500 C/M, Pentax 67II, Mamiya C220, Polaroid SX-70, various 35mm cameras and her old Kodak Instamatic from childhood.
