Lucas Foglia (born 1983) is a fine art photographer based in Berkeley, California, who makes stories about people in nature. With a clear aesthetic, his projects convey narratives that are lyrical, nuanced, and compassionate. He received a BFA from Brown University in 2005 and MFA from Yale University in 2010. His 2024 Guggenheim Fellowship traces the longest butterfly migration, creating an allegory for the delicate and interconnected world.

Foglia's photographic prints have been widely exhibited internationally, including at Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam, International Center of Photography, Museum of Contemporary Art Denver,

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Victoria & Albert Museum. He has published five books: A Natural Order (2012), Frontcountry (2014), Human Nature (2017), Summer After (2021), and American Prayer (2024).
Combining art and advocacy, Foglia also shares his photographs with the people he portrays, news organizations, and NGOs.
