Experimental research into hadron structure in the light quark sector using a real photon beam. I coordinate and lead analysis into data taken at the BGOOD experiment at the ELSA electron accelerator. The forward kinematics we access are particularly sensitive to „exotic“ hadron structure, for example, baryons consisting of more than three constituent quarks. Two recent highlights include the study of the Lambda (1405) which is often described as kaon-nucleon molecule, and the searchfor exotic dibaryons, which may play an important role in the formation of neuron stars.
