ENVIRONMENT:   Molly has an educational and professional background in environmental work which continues to inform her photographic practice. Her project work has led her from a permaculture homestead high in the Andean mountains in Ecuador, to a biodynamic farm in Ireland where she lived in community with adults with special needs.  In her studio Molly works with natural fibre paper (cotton rag as well as bamboo, sugar cane and mulberry) and reclaimed wood frames.  As much as possible she commutes on a bicycle converted to carry photographic equipment.  (Extensive information on Molly's environmental initiatives can be found at mollycrealock.wordpress.com.)
