For over a decade my photographic explorations have focussed on documenting the built environment and the cultural landscape of specific places. A resident of coastal flatlands for much of my life, I moved to Pittsburgh in 2016 and immediately became enamored with the unique topographical conditions of life in this upland city. Situated within the lush Western Pennsylvania forest, on undulating terrain, with a vista point from every bridge, hollow, hillside, and street corner, Pittsburgh presents a unique case study for observing how we have built and inhabit urban space. Indeed, the land on which the city rests has forced this photographer to adopt new perspectives and methods of working. Consequently, I have embarked on making a collection of photos that examine the distinct features that make Pittsburgh a fascination. I've been climbing city steps, peeking through the trees and bushes, and approaching the cityscape from the angles that the terrain demands. In my explorations I’ve gathered pictures that feature curious arrangements of the metropolis from above and below.
