Lucas Foglia’s recent photography exhibition at Brown University’s David Winton Bell Gallery, “A Natural Order,” portrayed people who left cities and suburbs to move off-grid in the southeastern United States. A graduate of Brown, Foglia, born in 1983, received his MFA in photography from Yale University in 2010. His impressive curriculum vitae belies the fact that the young artist grew up with his extended family on a small, self-sustainable farm, living off the land. In The Garden project Foglia worked with the South Side Community Land Trust in Providence, producing a portfolio of images that portrayed different ethnic communities coming together to grow food. Nazraeli Press published a monograph of “A Natural Order,” and Foglia is exhibiting his work internationally.
