I really enjoy Lucas Foglia’s photographs for two apparent reasons; the colors and titles.

I love the muted colors.  They are natural, soft and calming. The titles, for example, “Roger Weightlifting, Jonah Natural Gas Field, Boulder, Wyoming 2010” or “Cora in a Realtree Camouflage Dress, Tennessee 2008” are packed with information. This allows for a stronger connection between the viewer and the subject.

I want to pass along this blog to the class, http://www.arestlesstransplant.com/limited-space/ .  A Restless Transplant is a photo blog a man named Foster Huntington started in 2008. He travels around North America in a 1987 VW Vanagon Syncro camping and surfing. The blog has some awesome photographs that can easily connect to Lucas Foglia’s. (They’re also on facebook, https://www.facebook.com/arestlesstransplant and instagram)
