Titular photograph from David Schubert’s book Abandon Ship: images compiled during a week-long trip to New York City.
“These days too many people are taking pictures and too many pictures are being taken due to the cell phone cameras, digital cameras, and the surveillance that is being done today. This is an evil technological age that we are living in. I also feel that the majority of the people taking these pictures are driven by impure motives. However, I am very pleased to inform you that Dave Schubert exists, and is taking pictures, and has been for quite some time. Dave is a rare being. I don’t think of him as a photographer, because to me that’s a lame professional word used by corporations. He uses his eyes, his heart, and his hands to make epic pictures. Dave Schubert is a see-er.”
