Victory in the Wilderness Museum is a printed matter project that weaves together photographs, artifacts, ephemera, and archival material to reflect on intersecting ideals, histories, and human dilemmas across the lands of the American West.





Over the last twenty years, Jason Reed has been photographing his family’s cotton and maize farm in West Texas. The land sits near Wall, a farming community at the southern end of the Great Plains. Reed’s in-laws have run the farm for more than 50 years. Before that, they worked alongside their parents on this same land; they are the third generation to farm here. These semi-arid flatlands now serve as the starting point for a globalized cotton chain. Millions of pounds of cotton are harvested in the region every year, most of which are shipped 7,000 miles away on cargo ships to China for milling and production.

The Place Where Flags Wave is a serial publication that activates government pictures from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection official archives hosted on Flickr.

Volume 2 of the series looks at the border as an intersection of market demand, human suffering, and political posturing. Draconian policies of restriction create an environment where drugs are concealed in the hollows of truck tires or on desperate human bodies and women and children contort themselves to hide in car trunks—permissible victims in a duplicitous economic system.

The Place Where Flags Wave is a serial publication that activates government pictures from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection official archives hosted on Flickr.

Volume 1 of the series looks at the intersection of frontier mythologies and the militarization of the border. Heroic agents gallop to victory across the South Texas Plains in iconic poses of colonial power. The horse becomes the dirt bike and the helicopter, as military technology is increasingly implemented to exert control over the movement of people and goods across an arbitrary line drawn in the sand.

The dawn of the petroleum age in the 19th century was sparked by the need to fuel an increasingly illuminated world. Crude, or rock oil as it was first known, was a leap of faith toward a new source of energy (literally a spectacular fusion of Spiritualism and the emergent field of petroleum geology).

This risograph book looks at the oil industry in West Texas through archival pictures, contemporary landscape photographs, and documentation of detritus strewn along the highways that bisect the endless oilfields.
