Photographs by Lucas Foglia.
Nazraeli Press, Portland, 2014. 120 pp., 64 color illustrations, 10x13".
Between 2006 and 2013, Lucas Foglia traveled throughout rural Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and Wyoming, some of the least populated regions in the United States. 'Frontcountry' is a photographic account of people living in the midst of a mining boom that is transforming the modern American West.
Published in a first edition of 2,000 casebound copies, 'Frontcountry' is Lucas Foglia's second monograph. Foglia's first monograph, 'A Natural Order', was published by Nazraeli Press in 2012 to international critical acclaim. Foglia's photographs have been widely exhibited in the United States and in Europe, and are in the permanent collections of major museums including the Denver Art Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
A special edition of 'Frontcountry', which includes a signed and numbered original photograph presented with a copy of the book in a clamshell box, is also available.
