Michael Hoppen Contemporary is delighted to announce the first UK exhibition of Lucas Foglia’s beautiful and internationally acclaimed series A Natural Order, which is accompanied by the highly commended photo book of the same title.
Lucas Foglia grew up on a farm on Long Island just 30 miles from Manhattan. His parents were part of the post 1960’s “back to the land movement”. Much of the area surrounding the family home became increasingly urbanised, but his parents continued to strive for self-sufficiency. “While malls and supermarkets developed around us, we heated our house with wood, farmed and canned our food, and bartered the plants we grew for everything from shoes to dental work”.
The 2012 Summer Olympic Games, officially the Games of the XXX Olympiad (and known informally as London 2012) are in full swing in London, United Kingdom. Around 10,500 athletes from 204 National Olympic Committees (the group responsible for organizing their people’s participation in the games) will compete. Thousands and thousands of images will be made in London of the athletes and the spectators; the venues and the celebrations; the pomp and the circumstance. They can come from any time during competition or the second a medal is won. Here’s an updated look at Olympians in winning moments as the Games head to their conclusion this Sunday in London.
