EYES ON THE SOUTH: Jared Ragland Thumbnail

EYES ON THE SOUTH: Jared Ragland

Based on the themes and setting of Walker Percy’s 1961 novel The Moviegoer, Everything Is Going To Be All Right combines traditionally made black and white photographs with appropriated imagery. Made in New Orleans and largely shot at night, the photographs loosely document a dispossessed urban landscape, particularly the approximate locations of single screen movie theaters that once ubiquitously populated the city.

EYES ON THE SOUTH: Robbie McClaran

The alluvial plain south of Memphis on either side of the Mississippi River, in Mississippi and Arkansas, is a cruel and brutal landscape of flat dusty cotton fields, blackwater bayous, and heartbreaking poverty; a land with a mystique of mythical proportions.

The Fantasy of Objectivity

I am aware of the shortcomings of my work. I may not be the photographer you want me to be, but my work exists to generate a conversation—a mission it has not failed in yet.

The Historical and the Poetic Thumbnail

The Historical and the Poetic

Commonality—the points where cultures merge and resemble one another—is seldom a focus of documentary photography. Instead, postmodernists, social documentarians, and fine artists scan landscapes for irony, visual juxtaposition—for otherness. To deny my desire for otherness in Appalachia would be dishonest; I’m painfully aware of the way my relationship with Mack was limited by my previously established understanding of the “snake handler."
