Born in 1983 in Long Island. Lives and works in San Francisco.
Lucas Foglia makes photographs about places where wilderness and culture intersect: people moving off the grid in the rural southeastern United States, mining boom towns and ranching and farming communities in the rural West. Lucas Foglia was raised on a small family farm in New York and is currently based in San Francisco. A graduate of Brown University and the Yale School of Art, Foglia exhibits and publishes his photographs internationally. His work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Pilara Foundation and the Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Fine Art. His photographs have been published in Aperture Magazine, the New York Times Magazine, the Washington Post Magazine, British Journal of Photography, Contact Sheet, and PDN’s 30. His first book, A Natural Order, will be published by Nazraeli Press in Spring 2012.
