J.M. Golding is a photographic artist based in the San Francisco Bay area. She chooses plastic, pinhole, and vintage film cameras as her primary tools: plastic cameras such as the Holga for the spontaneity they promote and their capacity to help create dreamlike images, pinhole cameras for their simplicity and their contemplative quality, and vintage film cameras for the subjectivity of the images that are possible. J. M.’s photographs have been shown internationally in numerous juried and invitational group exhibitions, and she is the recipient of the Holga Inspire Award (2013), the Lúz Gallery Curator’s Choice Award (2009), Best of Show in Wanderlust (Dickerman Prints, 2017, in collaboration with Al Brydon), and several Honorable Mentions in other juried exhibitions. Her work has also been published in several books and in Diffusion, Shots, F-Stop, Square, Black & White, and Insight magazines, and on Inside the Outside, Don’t Take Pictures, The Holga Darkroom, and The Shot. She has been profiled in LensCulture, F-Stop Magazine, Wobneb Magazine, Mother F-Stop, Toycamera.es, and Pinholista and interviewed on the Sunny 16 podcast.
