A long term project by photographer Doug Dubois, this book is about teenagers growing up to adults. The series was shot in Ireland in one particular area. Doug came back each summer for 6 years in a row. Many of the images are staged.

The original prints had a wonderful brightness in them, very delicate. That was to be preserved in the reproduction. Something that is not easy with CMYK inks. At some point I had to re-evaluate all I thought I knew about printing to reach te desired step. That is how we learn.
