Martine Fougeron’s series, Teen Tribe, began in 2005 when her two sons were 13 and 14 respectively. It follows their adolescent years and is an intimate portrait of her sons and their friends in both New York and France. Fougeron explains, “The work explores adolescence as a liminal state, between childhood and adulthood, between the feminine and the masculine and between innocence and a burgeoning self-identity. The focus is on the adolescents’ heightened states of minds.” The Gallery Hermès presents 23 color photographs and is the first to exhibit the completed series. The show is timed with the anticipated publication of Fougeron’s Teen Tribe, A World with Two Sons (Steidl).
