Pittsburgh Now and Then

Installation at Design Pittsburgh 2016

The installation consists of two boards, containing a comparison of the most famous Pittsburgh panoramas, as viewed from Mount Washington and the West End Overlook. I took the contemporary panoramic photos and then researched the matching views from the XIX Century.

 

Special thanks to the Shaw Galleries, in Downtown Pittsburgh, and Kurt Shaw, for donating the digital images of the historic prints. You can see more of the Shaw Galleries prints and maps on their website.
