LRMA is honored to host the exhibition by photographers Jared Ragland and Cary Norton. This exhibition explores the importance of place, the passage of time, and the political dimensions of remembrance through the historical wet-plate collodion photographic process. Ragland and Norton’s large-scale images seek to make known a history that has largely been eliminated and make visible the erasure that occurred in the American South between Hernando DeSoto’s first exploitation of native peoples in the 16th century and Andrew Jackson’s Indian Removal Act 300 years later.
