Preservation Magazine's Favorite Photos from 2017

A Retrospective

Even though I am never able to visit all the places we feature in Preservation, I often feel as if I know them through the stories and photos we present in the magazine and online—and I hope you do as well. Good photography has a way communicating not just narratives but emotions. When I look back on the photos we published in 2017, my favorites do what I would imagine all photographers hope for: They capture the essence of the place.

Dennis Hockman is editor in chief of Preservation magazine. He’s lived in historic apartments and houses all over the United States and knows that all old buildings have stories to tell if you care to find them.
