Helfand’s research and photo-based art production have always been influenced by the environments and cultures in which she has lived, worked and traveled. Her artwork has explored issues addressing cultural observation and commentary, tourism, environmental concerns, racism and the medium of photography itself. During a career that has spanned over 30 years, the camera and the photographic image have continually morphed changing in design, format, impact and influence. These attributes are often reflected in her work and continue to inspire new directions.
