For Molly Peters, the tumult and change of 2020 has left the future unstable. “Even familiar scenes have been imbued with weight; either they carry feelings of nostalgia, looking at remnants of what life used to be like, or they embody the mystery of an uncertain future. As we move forward, the divide deepens between what was and what will be, and clarity on what the coming days and years will look like remains just out of reach.” Photographer Sally Mann states that “photographs open doors to the past, but they also allow a look into the future.” In her own compendium of images, Molly Peters imagines that future and feels it slip away in uncertainty.
