Molly Block's focus in photographing vintage signs stems from her appreciation for each sign's uniqueness and the craftsmanship involved in making each sign: each sign truly is a work of art. Also, the fact that weathering changes the appearance of signs, combined with property owners and/or real-estate developers who may not see value in preserving old signs, compels her to continue documenting signage and other roadside sights that still stand today. After all, the appearance of such artifacts may be different tomorrow, that is, if something is even still standing tomorrow.
A Texan by birth and a Houstonian by choice, Molly moved to Houston after living in Austin, Toronto, Southern California, and the Chicago area.
Molly's photography work has been shown in galleries in Houston, Fort Worth, Galveston, Round Top, Denver, Pomona, and Vienna (Austria), and featured in the Houston Chronicle and Houston Press and on various Web sites, including Collectors Weekly and the Houston-based real estate blog, Swamplot.com, among others.
