A Little Bit of Home

Photographer Christopher Erick shows his appreciation for Pittsburgh's architecture, vibrancy, and resilience the best way he knows how.

Life and love brought me there for the first time over a decade ago, and from the moment I stepped in and took a look around, I developed a soft spot. My photographer side is drawn to the straights, curves, colors and scope of Pittsburgh’s architecture. I love that I can see glimpses of the city that once was, even as the city that is continues to evolve. It’s a diamond in the rough. A flower blooming through the cracks in the concrete. Lush hills, rolling rivers, quirky artist communities and the pride of a city that has fought for it’s life, and survived. In Pittsburgh, I find a little bit of home.
