Though this online photographic exhibition inspired by The Moviegoer appeared in the January 2016 feature series "Eyes on the South" of The Oxford-American, I thought I would send its description and images on through to the Percy-L community for member enjoyment and Percy Project archiving.
The exhibit, entitled Everything is Going to Be All Right, features 21 black-and-white (and in some cases artistically-rendered) images with captions viewable through its slideshow presentation. View the exhibition, clicking on any image to open the slideshow, at: <http://www.oxfordamerican.org/item/741-the-moviegoer <http://www.oxfordamerican.org/item/741-the-moviegoer>>.
Please do "any or all" feel free to comment before the community on which image may speak best to you about the MG, its themes, or the New Orleans of its time. Enjoy!
Best Percy wishes,
Everything is Going to Be All Right, by Jared Ragland, is a photographic meditation on Walker Percy's classic novel of New Orleans, The Moviegoer.
Description: Everything is Going to Be All Right, by Jared Ragland, is a photographic meditation on Walker Percy's classic novel of New Orleans, The Moviegoer. The series documents a distressed urban landscape and imagines an era of the city's history when single-screen movie theaters dotted New Orleans. Combining traditionally made black-and-white photographs with appropriated imagery, Everything is Going to be All Right -- which was originally featured in "Eyes on the South" in 2014 -- conveys the artist's personal search for meaning amid feelings of loss, isolation, alienation, and malaise. Ragland is Binx Bolling with a camera.
