A Natural Order
In 2006, photographer Lucas Foglia began travelling throughout the southeastern United States befriending and photographing communities of people who had chosen to leave mainstream society and live off the grid. His interest in the project stemmed from his own upbringing. Like his subjects, he had grown up on a small farm with parents who had chosen a self-sufficient lifestyle. During his travels, Foglia met a new generation of people who had chosen to live radically independent lifestyles for some very modern reasons––including worries over the current economy, environmental concerns or simply to reduce government interference. A Natural Order showcases the people Foglia met and the communities he visited.
