San Francisco–based photographer and 2018 AIR Lucas Foglia delves into the relationship between people and the environment in his most recent project, Human Nature. This series of lyrical, richly hued, formally considered works pictures the ambiguous space between humans and nature, where the two meet, interact, and blend.

Developed over several years, Human Nature challenges the concept that humans and nature operate in opposition, while simultaneously highlighting relentlessly uneasy, absurdly comedic integrations of human technologies in the natural world. From literal urban jungles to the so-called untarnished wilderness, from the scientific realities of climate change to the poetic human longing for time outside, Human Nature is a nuanced exploration of the forces—both internal and external—that both pit us against and bring us closer to the natural world.

The Headlands presentation marks the West Coast premiere of this exhibition.
