Instagram Takeover – Molly Matalon

Molly Matalon‘s work deals with desire, idealization, and power dynamics, fixing a gaze that empowers and provides a rarely seen female photographic viewpoint. She was born and raised in South Florida, and received her BFA in photography from The School of Visual Arts in New York City, where she now lives and works.

Matalon’s sincere and personal language is carried through into her editorial work, as seen in The New York Times, M Le Monde, Interview Magazine, and Wallpaper*. She has exhibited internationally, and three monographs have been published on her work: two by New York-based VUU Studio, and a third, realeased in April 2020 by London-based publishers Palm* Studios.

Molly Matalon is taking over @paperjournalmag from today until 18 May. You can follow her @mollymatalon and see more of her work at
