This series is a return to my love of landscape, combining my photographs, both darkroom and digital, with 19th-century glass photo plates. Some variations include the original glass plate, some I have removed the image from the plate digitally and kept all the remnants of chemistry and evidence of time.

These composite images are “collage” type compositions reflecting my interest in memory and the relationship between the past and the present, exploring ways to reconcile the two on a sensory level. The images are purposely handled in a “scrapbook” analog fashion, emphasizing the physical nature of memory and all its imperfections. These explorations confront memory with associations or dissociations, reflecting the way memory breaks apart into fragments, sometimes joining them together in random ways, forming a new memory.

About Molly McCall
Molly’s photographic work over the past decade explores themes of memory, a sense of place, and the natural world using both painting and photography. Her eclectic style, use of mixed media, and found imagery have become a recognizable “mark” as her unique process and point of view have received notable recognition with numerous awards for her creativity with the photographic medium. Blending the photographic medium, art history, and imagination, Molly blurs the lines between photography and painting while honoring her long history with materials, textiles, and design.

Molly McCall’s work has been featured in a wide range of art, design, and lifestyle publications, and displayed both nationally and internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions. She is a native of Carmel Valley, CA, and currently lives there with her husband and their two German Shorthaired Pointers, Emma and Willy.
