In Good Time

The Aperture Foundation in New York and the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès present a mid-career survey of Doug DuBois entitled In Good Time: an ensemble drawn from three long-running series, reflecting on a remarkable artistic commitment over the long term.

A warmly lit scene. A group of adolescents play amongst themselves, or gaze out at the viewer. American photographer Doug DuBois has photographed the everyday lives of this group of Irish youngsters over the past five years. My Last Day at Seventeen portrays the complicated passage from childhood to adulthood. The series is one of three comprising the show In Good Time – an exhibition that highlights the recurring themes of family and time.

Doug DuBois (b. 1960) is a photographer for the long haul: the passage of time is manifest on the changing, carefully recorded faces of his subjects. In another series, All the Days and Nights, Dubois photographed his own family for over twenty years, chronicling their evolving interrelationships. For Avella he drew on his grandmother’s stories, interweaved with a portrait of a mining town in Pennsylvania that was her home. Often Dubois orchestrates scenes, deliberately engaging the narrative of cinema and literature.

In the words of the exhibition curator Cory Jacobs, a long-standing collaborator with the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès: ‘These rigorously composed images reveal both a profound humanity and the inexorable passing of time.’

This sensitive ensemble, full of intimate echoes that resonate with us all, is supported by the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès as part of its alliance with the Aperture Foundation.
