Historical Context:
David Lubbers received his undergraduate degree from Calvin College in 1969 and his master's degree from Michigan State University in 1973. Nine years latter, Lubbers traveled to Santa Fe, photographing extensively throughout the Southwest. Here, the artist developed a keen interest for the natural erosion patterns found in rock formations and the man-made ruins of Mexico. His goal was not only to document the evidence of time and weather, but also the soul of past peoples. Since then, Lubbers has photographed the West Coast of Michigan, the Netherlands, France and Italy while exhibiting both nationally and internationally.
