Doug’s Gym was recognized, if at all, by its vintage sign with the out-of-step promise of “reducing & weight gaining.” It was this sign, in fact, that originally caught Diamond’s eye. But when he first walked up the gym’s sagging steps, the last thing on his mind was building muscle and losing weight. The truth is, Diamond was feeling a little lost. He’d recently retired from a career as a doctor specializing in interventional radiology and was, in his words, “still coming to grips” with thirty years of seeing people in terrible and often incurable situations. The gym’s peeling paint and dark corners spoke to him—about years passing by, about mortality, and our ability to change. And so three times a week for six months he photographed a gym tinged with cigar smoke and sheltered from time.
