Pittsburgh: A Photographic Portrait II
Photography by Amy Cicconi
Narrative by Christy Repep
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is seated majestically at the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny rivers and at the source of the Ohio River. Over the past three decades, Pittsburgh has undergone a dramatic economic and cultural metamorphosis so impressive that it is widely viewed as a transformative example for other cities. Pittsburgh’s essence is no longer that of a gritty, dark steel town, but rather as a vibrant, thriving urban mecca, regularly appearing in the top ranks of “most livable” city lists. Amy Cicconi’s photography takes readers on a visual journey through the evolving landscape of the city of Pittsburgh, sharing reflections of its history and compelling views of its continued vibrance.
