A photographic survey of the state of Alabama made during a time of national urgency. Read the residency proposal here.

On the road Fall 2020-Spring 2021; and Winter-Spring 2022. Follow the project travelogue here and via Instagram @jaredragland.

Over the course of the project I’ll be reading and sharing from a list of Alabama-focused literature along with selections on photo history and ethics, documentary practices, and contemporary imagemakers. See the list here: Residency Reading List.

About The Do Good Fund, Inc: Since its founding in 2012, the Columbus, Georgia based public charity has focused on building a museum-quality collection of photographs taken in the American South since World War II. The collection ranges from works by more than twenty Guggenheim Fellows to images by lesser known and emerging photographers working in the region, each contributing to the visual narrative of the ever-changing South. Do Good’s mission is to make its collection of nearly 600 images broadly accessible through regional museums, nonprofit galleries, and nontraditional venues and to encourage complementary, community-based programming to accompany each exhibition. For more, visit and follow @thedogoodfund.

The project is also made with the support of the Magnum Foundation, Wiregrass Museum of Art, Coleman Center for the Arts, Alabama State Council on the Arts, and Columbus State University.
