Human Nature by Lucas Foglia

Research, Photography

Research suggests that time spent outdoors in nature is integral to a life well lived. And yet, humans have impacted (and in some cases destroyed) natural habitats worldwide. A series that investigates the “science” of our relationship to the natural world. 

Photos and words: Lucas Foglia

The series begins in cities and moves through forests, farms, deserts, ice fields, and oceans. At a time when the average American spends 93% of their life indoors, Lucas Foglia photographed government programs that connect people to nature; neuroscientists measuring how spending time in the wild benefits us; and climate scientists measuring how human activity is changing the air.
