Molly Barnes

(b.1993 Estill Springs, Tennessee)

"Bumble bees and hummingbirds. Humble bees and bumming birds. 6 acres is a lot with a push mower. Dip the linen in the indigo vat, hang it on the clothesline, do it again. Sewing machines always break. It’s ladies day at the local antique store. Make a cyanotype between the clouds. I could live off the smell of rain and honeysuckle”- Molly Barnes, 2018
