On the shores of Long Lake girls giggle in their cabins as counselors shush them during quiet hour. That’s where I first met Molly Rees, as a pre-teen at summer camp in Maine in the ’90s. In the last 5 years I’ve seen her storytelling, photojournalism, and unique perspective blossom into the creative business she now runs in Colorado.
When I look at her work I’m torn between framing it and finding a gallery to showcase her storytelling, or market her as a child, family, and lifestyle photographer. Needless to say, her work reminds me of commercial photographer Kate T. Parker’s, Strong is the New Pretty series as well as fine art photographer Sally Mann’s, Immediate Family (1992).
At Taiga Creative, I believe that an artist is an artist regardless of what avenue their work fits best, on what day, or with whomever the client or collector may be. View Molly’s entire portfolio here.
