Narrative-enhancing photography and film, with an emphasis on cause-driven storytelling. Honest, artful and relationship centered.
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. She intends an aesthetic meant to push boundaries and bridge difference.
Born in Oklahoma, and valued dual citizenship there and in Colorado as a child. Worked in the craft of imagery for 18 years in Los Angeles to then return back to red-dirt roots, creating a home on Oklahoma’s Ragland Ranch.
