Adam Eisenstat

Adam is a professional writer (and an avid photographer) whose work can be found at I​-Vor​text​.com, among other places. He was born and raised in Pittsburgh, and his name means “iron city,” which makes his lifelong fascination with scrap yards, industrial decay, entropy, and the like a kind of poetic cosmic destiny.
