Photographer Arthur Drooker, spent several decades photographing the world in the present until he realized that his interest was exploring the past. His photographs of ruins, in the United States and in the Americas to the south, merged his passions for history and photography. He is drawn to these sites to “understand those who came before us, preserve what they left behind, and restore what they’ve built to our collective memory. In this act of creation, I confront my own mortality and become most alive.”
