New at Carte Blanche: A Natural order by Lucas Foglia - Nazraeli
Carte Blanche is pleased to welcome internationally acclaimed, Bay Area photographer Lucas Foglia with his new book “A Natural Order” to the Carte Blanche bookstore with an artist talk and book signing event this Thursday July, 26th from 6-8:30pm.
In the summer of 2006, Lucas Foglia set out to photograph a network of people who had left cities and suburbs to live off the grid in the rural southeastern United States. The body of work, made over a five-year period, is gathered together in the artist’s first book, “A Natural Order” – a stunning collection that explores a human relationship with wilderness and the persistent libertarianism of the American psyche.
Foglia’s photographs, at once iconic and intimate, provoke us to take a candid look at individuals whose chosen lifestyles seem both exotic and unnervingly close to home.
Foglia’s most recent series of work was highly received at this year’s Rencontres d’Arles photography festival, and is on currently on view in San Francisco at Pier 24.
Come out and support! Should be a great time. Good work, by some good people!!
