Dave Schubert 

DOB 09/09/1973-01/01/2023


It is with a heavy heart that we are having a fundraiser for Dave Schubert who on January 1, 2023 left the planet too soon.


Dave produced a phenomenal body of photographs and collaged notebooks chronicling street art, the skateboard scene, tagging, The Mission School and his friends hanging and partying with a joy and panache only a sweet soul like Dave could capture with that beaming smile and twinkle in his eyes that could charm the most hardened street ruffian. 


History we know is told by those that write the books, who take the pictures, who were there. Dave was that type of artist. Always observing, ready at an instance to capture the most magic of moments… But being a great photographer takes more than shooting. It's nurturing and caring for those images, interpreting them, reconfiguring them, making prints, zines, books, shows, and creating art from them. This is a lifelong journey. Sadly his journey was cut short. This body of work is way too important to let languish, we need to care for it, make exhibitions and books with it, and have it live in the world.


We will keep Dave's work and spirit alive by preserving his lifelong quest to document the weird, beautiful subcultures from Washington D.C. to NYC to S.F. Wherever he landed with that camera around his neck and that smile on his face. We hope for future generations to marvel at all of these beautiful brilliant souls Dave knew and so lovingly photographed. Thank you Dave for being you and brightening our lives.


The funds needed are to clean out his former home, studio, and storage unit pay past bills, and save and preserve his archive AND we are excited to co-host a memorial show and Celebration of Dave's life at the infamous Luggage Store Gallery in San Francisco in 2023.
