MOLLIE MILLS

Mollie Mills
With a background in fashion, UK-based Mollie Mills turned to documentary when she realized she was more interested in working with real people than models. Describing her work as real and spontaneous, Mills finds inspiration in sources as diverse as Harmony Korine and Rineke Djikstra to YouTube videos and old postcards. The results are absorbing short form documentaries on idiosyncratic subjects ranging from figure skaters and boxers to New York City subway dancers and tattoo artists, with a style that expands small moments of space and time to revel in their beauty. Currently wrapping a piece on Pantsula dancers in South Africa (who she found on YouTube), Mills intends to remain committed to depicting youth and street culture, and to exhibiting her work online. While the web initially appealed for its accessibility, Mills now sees something democratic in the online space, where work is shareable, downloadable, mutable, and free. This resistance to elitism resonates in Mills' work itself, which gives voice to her subjects’ everyday experience in a way that infuses the action with meaning and significance, finding intimacy in the singular focus of her human subjects and beauty in the details of their unique surroundings.
