Lucas Foglia works as a documentary and portrait photographer, collaborating with people and organizations across the country, while using photography to promote positive change. His recent body of work documented the community garden plot in the Southside of Providence, RI. While observing the functional service of the garden space, he also reveals the more complex dialogue fostered between crossing cultures. During his residency at Light Work, Lucas focused on the editing and printing of a new body of work that documents off-the-grid communities and their inhabitants, allowing insight to alternative lifestyles, while maintaining sensitivity toward his subjects through personal involvement.
Lucas Foglia was raised on a small family farm in Huntington, Long Island. A graduate of Brown University with a BA in Art Semiotics, he has received many grants and fellowships and has had numerous national exhibitions, as well as being published in several national magazines and journals. Lucas is currently based in Rhode Island, but travels extensively to work on his projects.
