The Point from Mount Washington

Gigapan: Dror Yaron

The images in this magazine contain the stories rather than illustrate them. The stories in this magazine are interactive. Feel free to navigate the sequence, place importance where you choose, add your own informative snapshots, comment, ask and answer questions.

This first issue was put together by photojournalism students from Point Park University led by Christopher Rollinson. Also included are panoramas by photography students at the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild Youth program, and by myself. Special thanks to Ron Baraff of Rivers of Steel Heritage Area for the many great snapshots that zoom back in time.

By the way, you are making the next issue. I am very proud to introduce: Gigapan Magazine.

Dror Yaron, Director of Outreach, CREATE Lab CMU Robotics Institute.

Guest Editor:

As a photojournalist Christopher Rolinson documented day-to-day life in the sometimes gritty communities situated along the Upper Ohio River Valley. He has documented the war ravaged Former Yugoslav Republic of Kosovo and has returned to the region two more times to document and understand the diverse cultures of Eastern Europe.

In 2004 Rolinson began documenting Pennsylvania's state parks and wild places. While a U.S. National Parks Service Artist-in-Residence he documented the hard-scrabbled landscapes and culture of the desert border region.
