Doug DuBois has photographed his family for over twenty-five years, following the seasons of happy and sorrowful moments. His book …all the days and nights featuring this and sixty-one other images in the series, is the result of decades-long observation, during which DuBois’ family experienced many joyous occasions and devastating losses.
DuBois’ photographs are in the collection of major museums such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, NY; SFMOMA in San Francisco, CA; J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, CA; the Library of Congress in Washington, DC; and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England. Exhibition venues include the J. Paul Getty Museum; The Museum of Fine Art in Houston, TX; New Langton Arts in San Francisco, CA; PARCO Gallery in Tokyo, Japan; Voies Off in Arles, France, and more. DuBois has received fellowships from MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, The National Endowment for the Arts, SITE Santa Fe, Light Work, and the John Gutmann Foundation. His work has been published in DoubleTake, New York Times, The Telegraph (London), and Monopol (Berlin), among others.
