SOUTHERN DISCOMFORTS:
Internationally acclaimed, award-winning artist Terri Garland has been exploring issues of racial discordance and the culture of the American South for more than 20 years. The work is sometimes controversial, however, the artist's intent is to present the images as visual texts which serve both as social documents and cultural observations from a very personal perspective.
The events of Hurricane Katrina and the horrific aftermath for the people of Louisiana and Mississippi presented a poignant and more urgent context for Garland's work. "Meditations on Strength and Neglect" further explores the "Southern Discomforts" idiom in a time of intense stress.
In the last three years Garland has continued working extensively in Mississippi and Louisiana examining all aspects of the racial issues that continue brew against a background of dichotomous tradition and a distinctly Southern cultural landscape.
Ms. Garland's documentary photographic work has been widely exhibited in the US and Europe, published in major periodicals around the globe, and is represented in major American and European museums, libraries and private collections.
Terri Garland and Perspective Fine Art are solely and entirely responsible for the content of these images, which are presented here both as visual documents and as works of art. They are presented with no intention to incite or insult anyone, nor are they meant to profess a belief, present a critique, or otherwise embrace a point of view beyond that of the artist's presentation of her observations.

Louisiana Purchased - Disappearing Wetlands of Coastal Louisiana
This work examines the consequences of greed and neglect in relation to both the loss of vital wetlands in the lower coastal parishes of Louisiana and the health of people living in close proximity to oil refineries along the Mississippi River. The foremost factor compromising the welfare of these regions and their citizens remains our insatiable demand for petroleum products and the irresponsible methods by which that demand is satisfied.
