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 by Lucas Foglia that investigates the “science” of our relationship to the natural world.
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.
