Goodyn Green – The Catalog at Strange Loop Gallery in New York

Goodyn Green is a queer feminist photographer, born in Aalborg, Denmark 1979. She graduated as an art and history primary school teacher from N. Zahles College of Education in Copenhagen in 2005, but after 2 years of teaching she decided to move to Berlin to focus on photography.

Since the first issue in 2009, Goodyn has been the main photographer of Berlin based Bend Over Magazine. The same magazine presented Greens first photo collection, The Catalog, with erotic images of androgynous looking queer women inspired by poses from classic gay porn magazines. At Goodyn Green’s website you can photos from her series The Catalog. Her exhibition The Catalog at Strange Loop Gallery, in New York City originally running through June 30 will be extended for the month of July.

Green often has a strong feminist agenda in creating awareness of female sexuality as “aggressive” as the depicted male sexuality, – through pornographic and erotic portraits of queer women. Currently she is working on a portrait project with models who identify as women, but who are frequently mistaken for another gender, harassed or insulted in public or private. Through this Green wants to put a focus on the uncountable variations of female expressions. Furthermore she is busy photographing for her series The Logbook, a series of photographs of women in intimate moments seen through Green’s eyes as their lover or girlfriend.
