Heavy Metal is Arthur Drooker’s first self-published monograph. Its subject is Schnitzer Steel’s massive recycling facility in Oakland, California. As the first photographer allowed on the premises, Drooker became an urban explorer discovering an unchartered industrial landscape. His 18 color photographs of stacked cars, compressed radiators, and other recyclables show the singular beauty he found in the mass of consumption.

The monograph is $25.00, plus $5.00 for shipping and handling in the continental United States. Purchase a signed copy here:
