City Focus: Cincinnati by Gene Dow

5 Mar

Cincinnati. It doesn’t get much more American than this city on the north bank of the Ohio River. Often referred to as “The Queen City”, Cincinnati is well known for it’s Italian architecture, cultural diversity, baseball team and steaming hot plates of spaghetti, piled high with chili and cheese.

In this series, I photographed in the Western side of the city, an area called Price Hill. It is forlorn, lonesome and deserted, but still has many stories to tell. I tried to capture some of the subtle beauty in the aging structures and the deep, rich colors that go unnoticed. I searched for and found age, patina, history and the traces of the many folks that have passed by over the years.

I’m always amazed at what treasures can be discovered when you actually take the time to look. Enjoy!

    I love these. I could write a short story about each of these lives. So interesting. Thank you!
