David Lubbers earned his undergraduate degree from Calvin College and his master’s degree from Michigan State University in1973. Afterward, he taught in the Grand Rapids Public Schools for 12 years before moving to Santa Fe where he extended his interest of natural erosion patterns, to the man-made ruins of Mexico. While there, he used a large-format camera to photograph not only the evidence of time and weather, but also the soul of the people. Since that time Lubbers has photographed the West Coast and Michigan, the Netherlands, France, and Italy. Four portfolios of his photographs have been published, as well as four books: Abiding, Landscape of the Soul and Persistence of Vision, The Waters of Michigan and Within Two Miles Views of the Saugatuck Douglas Area. He has exhibited in Mexico, Italy, and Latvia in addition to numerous shows from Boston to San Francisco.
