Teen Tribe is a series of intimate portraits of Martine Fougeron’s two adolescent sons and their tribe of friends growing up in New York and France. Begun in 2004, Fougeron has followed the lives of her sons Nicolas and Adrien from the ages of thirteen and fourteen respectively as they entered adulthood. The book pictures adolescence as a transformative state, caught between childhood and adulthood, between the feminine and masculine, between innocence and burgeoning self-identity. As both mother and photographer, Fougeron combines a tender transparency for her subject with a more distanced view of the world of teenagers. Teen Tribe is a visual diary of her sons’ domestic lives arranged chronologically, capturing the different rites of passage and personal challenges they encounter over time. Inspired by Dutch paintings of domestic scenes particularly those of Vermeer, as well as by cinematic compositions, Fougeron’s work is both a sensual biography of two boys, and a depiction of the universal process of growing up to which all can relate.
