Molly Jarboe is a Buffalo, NY based artist who works in advertising by day. Originally from Omaha, NE, she received a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Kansas City Art Institute and a Master of Fine Art from the University at Buffalo.
Her photography and writing explore the fault lines that emerge when memory and landscape collide. Across her body of work she photographs cityscapes and natural landscapes, referencing a documentary style while embracing digital methods to recontextualize the images. She is concerned more with representing experiences than documenting actual events.
Her current projects include an ongoing Pop - up photography series with three other artists photographing Buffalo's East Side. These neighbourhoods are characterised by rows of vacant houses, swaths of urban prairie and a burgeoning immigrant population. A solo project obsessively seeks a seemingly endless array of vantage points surrounding a lone water tower in the centre of a small, historic town in Virginia.
