Molly Caenwyn is a photographer and photographic historian with an avid interest in photographic materiality and the phenomenological experience of photography. She works in analogue and alternative photographic processes, such as cyanotypes, and develops film using the Caffenol development process.


Her pieces are lifted with theoretical frameworks including eroticism, Feminism and Julia Kristeva’s abject which are used to examine social attitudes towards sex and gender. This also extends to her historical research which currently focuses on photography and the sex industry, LGBT history and early Welsh female photographers.
