A natural Order
March 8–april 7, 2013
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.
Curated by Mark Sink, A Natural Order will be presented in the Laura and David Merage Foundation Photography Gallery from Friday, March 8 through Sunday, April 7, 2013. The exhibition opening celebration will be Friday, March 15, with a members preview from 6–8PM and a public opening from 8–10PM.
Month of Photography Denver (MoP), a biennial citywide exhibition, is produced and curated by Denver photographer Mark Sink. For four weeks beginning in March, visitors can tour photographic displays and exhibitions in more than 125 venues throughout the city, ranging from museums and galleries to coffee shops and billboards. MCA Denver is proud to present this exhibition as part of the festival.
