P. Guilmoth lives in rural New Hampshire and Maine on Penacook and Abenaki land. Their work is about queerness, family, rurality, myth, and their love of the natural world. P'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. P is represented by Kominek Gallery in Berlin.

They are 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 their shutter. They have three book projects that will be released between fall 2023 and 2024.

At MacDowell, P spent each day in the darkroom creating both monochromatic and color analog prints using chemicals and organic matter. 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.
