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 6x7, Sinar 4x5, Deardorff 8x10, and, eventually, full frame digital Canons. More recent photos are snapshots made on iPhone.

David Pace is a San Francisco Bay Area photographer, filmmaker, and curator. He received his MFA from San Jose State University in 1991. He taught photography for 25 years at San Jose State University, San Francisco State University and Santa Clara University, where he served as Resident Director of SCU's study abroad program in West Africa from 2009 - 2013. David photographed in the small sub-Saharan country of Burkina Faso annually from 2007-2016, documenting daily life in Bereba, a remote village without electricity or running water. His work has been exhibited and published internationally. His African photographs of the Karaba Brick Quarry were featured in the 2019 Venice Biennale in a group show entitled Personal Structures organized by the European Cultural Center. He has had solo shows at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon, Center for Photographic Art in Carmel, California, and the Griffin Museum in Westchester, Massachusetts. His book Images In Transition, a collaboration with gallerist Stephen Wirtz, was published in the spring of 2019 by Schilt Publishing. He and his wife Diane have collaborated on the new book, Where the Time Goes, which documents aging and change, hope and love, over their five decades together. Diane Jonte-Pace has been either in front of a camera or behind a camera for most of her life. She grew up in a home with a variety of cameras, as well as a darkroom, a 16 mm film projector, and a small projection booth (but no TV). For most of her adult life as well, cameras have been ubiquitous in the home, although her career path did not involve photography. A retired professor, scholar, and administrative leader, Diane served as Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs at Santa Clara University, supervising faculty, curriculum, and academic programs. She taught courses in the Department of Religious Studies, focusing on psychology of religion and feminist theology. Her early scholarship, such as her 2001 book Speaking the Unspeakable: Religion, Misogyny, and the Uncanny Mother in Freud's Cultural Texts, explored psychoanalytic perspectives on religion, gender, and culture. Recent publications have addressed Jesuit education, curricular reform, and university support for faculty transitioning to retirement. She holds a doctorate from the University of Chicago. Diane and her husband, photographer David Pace, have two daughters and four wonderful grandchildren. She enjoys food, film, literature, music, and art - especially photography. Her current camera of choice is the cell phone.
