Lucas Foglia - Human Nature

02/02/2018 - 15/04/2018

Keizersgracht 609 
1017 DS Amsterdam   

Human Nature is a series of interconnected stories about nature, people, government, and the science of our relationship to wilderness. Lucas Foglia (b. 1983, US) deftly navigates the strange conceptual territory, where wild nature is both a quenching oasis and a shimmering mirage. His photographs show people gazing at nature, touching it, submerging themselves in it, studying it, nursing it, killing it, profiting off it, and, often just barely, surviving upon it. 

Lucas Foglia is a storyteller in the tradition of the great American photographers who show social commitment without losing sight of the aesthetics. His exhibition in Foam will show 35 large format works from Human Nature, plus an installation of books and images made in collaboration with the scientists he photographed. A monograph, published by Nazraeli Press (2017), will accompany the exhibition.
