Electric Works presents
Recent Work by Dave Schubert
November 1- 30
Opening reception Friday, November 1, 6-8 PM

Please join us for Dave Schubert’s first solo show at the gallery. Schubert’s deep commitment to documenting life on the street and his scholarship of the history of photography equal a powerful body of work. Often risking his own well-being Schubert makes images very few of us would dare to take, even if we were to witness them. The body of work will focus on images made in the Bay Area over the last decade, including many never-before-exhibited photographs. Schubert will be using both the main gallery and our project space to install this work which will include black and white and color photographs.
