Join us in the Bookshop and meet photographer Lucas Foglia, who is launching his new monograph Human Nature, published by Nazraeli Press. Lucas will be talking about his new work followed by a book signing.
Foglia writes, “I grew up on a small farm in the suburbs, thirty miles east of New York City. The forest that bordered the farm was my childhood wilderness, a wild place to play that was ignored by our neighbors who commuted to Manhattan. In 2012, Hurricane Sandy flooded our fields and blew down the oldest trees in the woods. On the news, scientists linked the storm to climate change caused by human activity. I realized that if humans are changing the weather, then there is no place on earth unaltered by people.”
Both factual and lyrical, the series is a celebration of the curious. At times funny, sad or sensual, the images illuminate the human need to connect with nature and to the wildness in ourselves.
