A Photographer Shows Us All Sides to Cincinnati
Phil Armstrong's job as assistant editor for a local lifestyle website takes him all throughout the neighborhoods and surrounding areas of Cincinnati, Ohio, which conveniently presents perfect opportunities to take snapshots of the city that he loves.
"Rarely a week goes by where I'm not at two or three different places," Armstrong says. With his camera in tow, Armstrong has been capturing the many facets of Cincinnati—from places restored and places whose time haven't yet come, to historic sites across the river in Kentucky—and sharing them on his Instagram account, @cincyphil.
You might recognize one of his photos from the "This Place Matters" back page in the Winter 2018 issue of Preservation magazine. Here, Armstrong shares nine more photos he took of Cincinnati and its surroundings (some open to the public, some not) and explains why these places matter to him.
