Peah-Pauline Guilmoth lives in rural New Hampshire and Maine on Penacook and Abenaki land. Her work is about queerness, family, rurality, myth, and her love of the natural world. Peah-Pauline's second monograph, titled At Night Gardens Grow, was released in the winter of 2021 by Stanley/Barker books and was sold out within a few weeks. She is represented by Kominek Gallery in Berlin.

Peah-Pauline is currently taking photographs of deer, fox, birds, and other animals using a 4x5 camera, a hunting blind, a flash, and 100 feet of rope that's connected to the camera's shutter.

The work will be shown in exhibits in Richmond, VA, at Candela Gallery, and in Berlin at Kominek Gallery in 2023-2024. There will also be selections of the work published in an upcoming monograph with Stanley/Barker.
