Raised in Johnstown, PA and based in Cleveland, OH, Jacob Koestlerhas long meandered this cross–section of the rust belt and Appalachia. This image shows the Kinzua Bridge after it was struck by a tornado in 2003. Built in 1882 and once billed as the "Eighth Wonder of the World", it briefly held the record as the tallest railroad bridge in the world. After the bridge collapsed, a cap was built on the portion that remained, creating a lookout of the wreckage. Koestler is a co–founder of My Idea of Fun, an independent book publisher, and is currently a lecturer in the Photography and Video Department at The Cleveland Institute of Art.
