Jared Ragland, Everything Is Going To Be All Right

In Everything is Going to Be All Right, both traditionally made black and white photographs and digitally sourced appropriated imagery are combined to produce a meditation on Walker Percy’s 1961 novel, The Moviegoer. Made in New Orleans (where the story is set) 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. After photographing these locations, I input the theaters’ names – ones like The Tiger, The Cortez, Dreamland, and The Gaiety – into Google image search to create a database of images that shares the landscape photographs’ melancholic tones. The result is a body of work that aims to simultaneously address the plurality of symbolic functions and describe my own personal search for meaning amid feelings of loss, isolation, alienation, and malaise.

The Extremes of Virginia

With his 40+ years of involvement with the Virginia General Assembly, author August Wallmeyer uses a mixture of humor and blunt candor to dissect conditions in The Extremes of Virginia, and offers his thoughts on practical steps to improve economic, social, and cultural conditions for the ten percent of Virginians living there. Wallmeyer has been associated with the Virginia General Assembly for more than 40 years, having covered the legislature as a TV news reporter, served as press secretary and speechwriter for a state Attorney General, written policy and lobbying documents for an energy company and have been the executive director and principal lobbyist for a trade association whose members invested more than $3 billion in Virginia.
