City of Bridges
For ten weeks the students from the City of Bridges class were taken out on various field trips to some of Pittsburgh’s most notable bridges. Students would learn the history of each bridge and then have the chance to photograph what inspired them while on the structures. They used 35mm film cameras, then learned to process their film and print their photographs in MCG’s darkroom.
