Historical Context:
Through his black and white photography, local artist David Lubbers captures a moment in time that may never be captured the same way ever again. Whether photographing the lakeshore of his hometown of Holland, Michigan, the rocky cliffs of national parks in Santa Fe, New Mexico, or the worn and story filled ruins of Mexico, Lubbers has the same goal in mind: to photograph the then and now, as whatever place is in his photographic lens will never be quite the same ever again. On his work he states, “This moment that was captured, it didn’t exist for a long time. It happened… and then it no longer happened. As a photographer, my value is all of the things that I see. Hopefully, this helps people to reflect. Reflection is the point of life. Everything is meant to be reflected upon, inspected."
