Where the Time Goes


“Where the Time Goes” provides a window into the past. It is the story of youth, aging, and change over time. It’s a story about family photography over five decades, of a post-war generation coming of age, and turning the camera upon itself.

Diane Jonte-Pace, David Pace


“This book would not exist if David hadn’t come so close to death. In December 2016 David was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of lymphoma. The oncologist gave him a thirty percent chance of survival. I didn’t expect him to live”.

During the time her husband and photographer David Pace went through chemotherapy and radiation, Diane Jonte-Pace turned to a long-postponed household project: to arrange and sort unlabeled and unsorted old photographs, stored in shoeboxes all around the house. Prints and slides, dating from 1970, when the couple first met, individually and collectively, captured a sense of time past and time passing, while each individual photograph froze a moment in their lives.

Technically and stylistically, this book incorporates most of the forms of photography available over the last five decades, starting in a period when cameras and film were becoming more accessible and less expensive. From the 35mm single-lens reflex camera, Brownie Hawkeye, Polaroid, and single-use throwaway cameras to professional cameras like the Pentax 6×7, Sinar 4×5, Deardorff 8×10, and, eventually, full frame digital Canons. More recent photos are snapshots made on iPhone.
