Lucas Foglia is on an international travel schedule - London, Paris, and....Oregon! Lucas will be at Ampersand Gallery and Fine Books Saturday the 3rd at 7:30pm for an artist talk and book signing. It has been great to see Lucas' series A Natural Order (exploring off-the-grid/intentional communities) develop over the years and culminate in a publication from Nazraeli Press.
Curious about the back story on the series? Laura Moya interviews Lucas here.

At Blue Sky this month, the work of Rania Matar and Justyna Badoch is on exhibit. A Girl and her Room and Bachelor Portraits both look at a societal subsets (teenagers and single men) in their intimate spaces. Both Rania and Justyna will be at Blue Sky this evening during First Thursday for the opening.
These are great examples of photographers motivated by examining societal expectations and stereotypes and on the flip side, perhaps refuting some myths. Glad to have you all in Portland - see you there!
