DAVE SCHUBERT X OFF-HOURS

The ghosts of moonlit lanes know his name. He’s stalked them all before. Dave Schubert has been ducking and dodging his way through the shadows for ages, using the gruesome truths of our secret seconds as his muse. At home in the company of vandals and skaters and gangsters, all form of runaway and castaway, he moves through the gloom of the owl hours with his camera tucked away in his coat like a secret, or a pistol; ever vigilant to capture the lonesome moments of wayward lives with all the dignity and devotion of a tombstone inscription. He acts as neither impassioned participant nor sheepish peeper in these scenes of horrific beauty, but rather the curator of moments not often thought worthy of record, and of a mood that is as blue as it is true. -SAMMY WINSTON

Dave Schubert, perhaps best known for his photographs of urban life. He seems to have a sixth sense about him: he is always there at the scene of the crime (be it a street brawl, a late night bender, or any number of situations seemingly difficult to capture).  Documentary photographs without a specific narrative or agenda comprise Schubert's work, who has been a tireless historian of both San Francisco and New York graffiti, music and contemporary art scenes. Schubert lives and works in San Francisco.
