Fourth River Vol. 2 – Homestead/Smokestack by Lisa Toboz and Jeff Schreckengost
The second edition of The Contraphonic Sound Series exploration of Pittsburgh.
Fourth River Vol 2: Homestead/Smokestack is a collaborative effort of husband-wife duo Lisa Toboz and Jeffrey Schreckengost. Homestead/Smokestack is an evocative call to the personal ties of home and landscape, and the layers of memory upon which civic fabrics are built.
Toboz’s essay and images, accompanied by Schreckengost’s composition, balance the personal and political, unfolding the history of a childhood home – and a declining industry – like a series of warm, personal Polaroids juxtaposed against a dispassionate industrial cityscape.
