    I love Lucas Foglia’s work.

    I wrote about Lucas Foglia’s new book Frontcountry for photo-eye and also did an interview with him. We’re continuing a dialog we’ve been having for a few years now about documentary intention, photography and politics. Congrats to Lucas on a beautiful new monograph.

    DS:     In this book, and definitely in A Natural Order, there is a pervading sense of violence and sexuality, the two often occurring simultaneously (the origin of life, the fate of death, pain and pleasure?). Your subjects are often drenched in deeply psychological offerings for your audience. Is this totally conscious on your part? 

    LF:     The expressions of the people I photograph come from the situations I photograph in, situations that I am a part of. Tom and Donnie, for instance, were looking at each other arguing about who would remove the rope from the cow’s horn. The soccer players are engrossed in a moment waiting for a ball. Stacy was looking at me. I think any expression that is honest is ambiguous, made up of mixed emotions.

    When a forest fire started burning outside of town, George’s daughter asked me to keep him company. George raised cattle for most of his life. In his retirement he enjoys chasing wildfires. We drove on dirt roads with dust coming up through the floor of his truck, and then stopped at the hill with the fire burning on the other side. In the photograph, the fire cloud arcs over both of us. It reminds me of how immense and uncontrollable that landscape is, and of how thrilled and vulnerable I feel in it. 

    I went and saw this show in New York and you should make an effort to as well, very worth your time.
