  • Catalogue Essay

    This work is from the series Human Nature by Lucas Foglia, focusing on people who care for nature in the context of climate change. For 12 years, Foglia travelled around the world, befriending and photographing individuals who, in spite of the enormity of the task, are working towards an eco-positive future. Human Nature is a series of interconnected stories about our reliance on nature and the science of our relationship to the natural world. Each story is set in a different landscape: city, forest, farm, desert, ice field, ocean and lava flow. From a newly built rainforest in urban Singapore to a Hawaiian research station measuring the cleanest air on Earth, the photographs examine our need for ‘wild’ places – even when those places are human constructions.

    Lucas Foglia (b.1983) is a photographer living in San Francisco. His works are held in major public and private collections, including the International Center of Photography in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the V&A in London.
