With a degree in environmental science and photography, Nicol Ragland has created imagery emphasizing cause-driven storytelling. Rather than causing dispute, her work focuses on reconfiguring who we are, with an aesthetic pushing boundaries and bridge differences.
After directing the film Trans Pecos, she has continued her work in the growing movement of Regenerative Agriculture, documenting work from RCS Australia and black farming in Oklahoma. She is currently building the non-profit Regenerate Oklahoma, a statewide soil health initiative that seeks to advance regenerative agriculture practices.
Raised in Oklahoma and Colorado with an 18-year stint in Los Angeles working in visual arts, she later returned to red-dirt roots, creating a home on Oklahoma’s Ragland Ranch.
