Conventional Wisdom photo book by Arthur Drooker
In the video below, Arthur Drooker talks about his book, Conventional Wisdom. The book is the result of his documenting different conventions around the United States. He encountered all sorts of weird and wonderful gatherings: mermaids, My Little Pony fans, ventriloquists, and much else besides. Feature Shoot recently published an article about one of them, called ‘Fetish Con’ (NSFW).
Arthur Drooker is also the photographer and author of American Ruins, Lost Worlds, and Pie Town Revisited.
