After a long term photographic and film exploration into humanity’s relationship to culture and the wild, Ragland finds culture to be an accumulation of ideas where we explore ways of exploring. This infinite play is where she’s found the best terrain to collaborate, listen carefully and recognize expansion due to authoring and co-authoring.
Photographs and films have become her best challenge to create imagery that does not cause dispute but rather reconfigure who we are.
An aesthetic meant to push boundaries and bridge difference.
