Unidentified Pittsburgh explores the Pittsburgh Photographic Library to find images that lack descriptive information (names, dates, locations, etc.). Through these unknown photographers’ lenses, an unfamiliar and surreal view of the city is revealed.
“The Pittsburgh Photographic Library (PPL) is a collection of historic images documenting life in the Pittsburgh area. A project of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development, its purpose was to highlight the redevelopment of Pittsburgh in the 1950s. The collection has grown in size and scope since coming to the Carnegie Library in 1960. The PPL now offers over 57,000 photographs featuring important Western Pennsylvania places, significant milestones and extraordinary people.”
