Lucas Foglia’s extraordinary shots of America in the new Printed Pages

Almost two years ago to the day we discovered the work of a Californian photographer who had immersed himself in remote American communities embracing the “back to the land movement” and created an extraordinary body of work in the process. Lucas Foglia’s A Natural Order uncovered a side of US culture we’d never seen before, presenting extraordinary lives in the manner of a Flemish master; with rich chiaroscuro, atmospheric composition and a simple honesty that comes from wanting to represent fact as clearly as possible.

A couple of years later we’ve had the privilege to interview Lucas in-depth in the latest issue of Printed Pages, where we focus on Frontcountry, his latest body of work – an homage to the industrial communities of the Midwest and the landscapes that seem to swallow people up. Like A Natural Order, Frontcountry shows off an America which few are familiar with, brimming with folklore and handed-down tales to combat the inescapable feeling of isolation. Like the people he meets on his travels, Lucas is an excellent raconteur, and gave us countless stories and insights that you can read more about over here.
