Like the fiber in a tapestry the artist and the city are wound tight. In Pittsburgh each glimmers inextricably.
It's odd that cities and artists need one another when the functions they perform seem so different. Which I suppose explain why artists revile so much of urban life, longing for an imagined peace in the "natural" ways of the countryside. And why cities dismiss the artists' bitching, whining, and longing for a better place as so much pretentious prattle.
I like urban tensions, I think they attract my lens the way trailer parks attract cyclones.
