AMERICAN RUINS

AMERICAN RUINS

California-based photographer Arthur Drooker loves historic architecture. His infrared pictures of American ruins are a glimpse into his fascination with monolitchic decay. Something about them just seems so surreal and ominous. Moodiness aside, fans can check out more of Drooker’s gloomy work currently on display at the Virginia Center For Architecture, which is running his exhibition until November 28th. When asked about his technique Drooker reveals that he shoots with a special 35mm digital infrared camera, and that “the ethereal effect illuminates the otherworldy atmosphere that haunts ruins, allowing a photographer to transcend mere documentation and capture the mystery and elegiac beauty of crumbling walls, weathered facades and broken arches as no other format can.” Deep.br> Arthur-Drooker-CookBank
