Arthur Drooker is a photographer from Northern California, who, during the pandemic, has been sheltering at his coastal home overlooking the Pacific Ocean. With an unobstructed panoramic view of the sea and the sky, it is the perfect setting to photograph twilight, the time of the day he finds most captivating.
Drooker photographs twilight from the same location each day that he shoots the series, making photographs that capture the variety, intensity and transition of colors that only the sun and the atmosphere can conjure.
Twilight not only refers to the soft glowing light in the sky when the sun is below the horizon, but also to a period of ambiguity or gradual decline.
Arthur Drooker is an author of several books, most recently City Hall (Schiffer, 2021).
His work has been the subject of a feature story on CBS Sunday Morning and has been exhibited widely, including shows at the Virginia Center for Architecture and the Art Museum of the Americas in Washington, DC.
