Molly Peters is an LA-based photographer and visual storyteller who was born and raised on Martha’s Vineyard. She has an insatiable curiosity about the world around her, and this drive to find new visual inspiration is evident in her photographs. Respectful, yet often mysterious or uncanny, her work deals with spirituality, memory, and human connection to the natural world, while reflecting a fierce protectiveness of the people and places she loves.
Molly completed a BA in Photography and Italian Studies at Bard College in 2010, and she earned an MFA in Photography from the Hartford Art School in 2018. Her photographs have been shown in solo and group exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Boston, Hartford, and Berlin, and prints of her work are in a number of private collections worldwide. One of her photographs is part of the permanent collection of the Burchfield Penney Museum in Buffalo, NY. Her most recent photobook, Rancho, was self-published in March 2019.
Publications include the Washington Post, Bloomberg Businessweek, Aint-Bad, ARRI, Humble Arts Foundation, Don't Take Pictures, Foundry Journal, and Pearl Press. Since the onset of COVID-19, she has been a group leader and regular contributor to The Journal, a collaborative project between over 400 women* photographers worldwide, who are documenting their lives during the pandemic.
