Summary, etc
  • "There are nearly two million conventions, conferences, and trade shows each year in the United States. They offer a once-a-year opportunity for like-minded people to come together and express themselves freely. Photographer Arthur Drooker attended the quirkiest of these conventions, including gatherings for mermaids, furries, and fetishists, and documented them as expressions of community, culture, and connection. From ballrooms to guest rooms, and over acres of bad carpeting, Drooker goes behind the scenes and deep into the heart of these fascinating subsets of American popular culture."--Jacket.

An unconventional chronicle, Conventional Wisdom is author-photographer Arthur Drooker's quirky look at conventions held by some unusual interest groups, including Lincoln presenters, furries, and mermaids. Dropper documents these events as unique expressions of community, culture, and connection. The humorous and insightful text, including intimate interviews conducted with attendees, complements the stunning photographs Drooker shot during his visits to each convention over a three-year period. From the ballrooms to the vendor rooms to the guest rooms, Drooker's ubiquitous camera captures the essence and exuberance of these annual gatherings. Conventional Wisdom shows that regardless of what they're about, where they're held or who attends them, all conventions satisfy a basic human urge: a longing to belong. The book reveals that at conventions people who share similar interests, even obsessions, come together to bond and to be themselves. The outside world doesn't matter. In fact, for the weekend duration of most conventions, the outside world doesn't even exist. An attendee Drooker met at the taxidermist convention expressed it best. "This isn't a convention," he said. "It's a family reunion."
