Maniscalco described himself and his work, "I consider myself to be an artist who works with a camera, rather than as a photographer. As an artist, I want to share my view of the world with you. Good art should captivate you, move you, or inspire you. Hopefully at least one of my works has done all three."
All works exhibited at PNC are for sale.
