Louisville is a true river city, one that grew from need in the late 18th century; the legendary Falls of the Ohio brought river traffic to a crawl, leading to the settlement of Louisville and surrounding areas, culminating in the city becoming a booming river town that revolved around its shipping trade. But Louisville isn’t one to look back. While it has become known for its connection to bourbon and is a destination every spring since 1875, thanks to the Kentucky Derby, the city thrives for many reasons. From a riverfront that has been developed into a thriving park area to its Museum Row, culinary scene, arts, and architecture, Louisville has developed a new personality, and one with a bright future.

William Manning has captured this spirit in photographs, creating a stunning display of color, culture, and a city very much on the rise. Enjoy this intimate portrait of a city by the mighty Ohio.
