These Photographs Capture the Grandeur of NYC's Churches

New, 4 comments

Photographer Richard Silver is capturing New York City's churches from a whole new perspective. Silver began photographing some of the city's loveliest churches and cathedrals in 2011, when he realized that he could capture the entire nave—pews, ceiling, stained glass, and all—if he used panorama mode. The result is what Silver refers to as his "Vertical Churches," a series of vertigo-inducing vertical panoramas (h/t 6sqft) that put the intricate architectural details of the buildings on full display. The photos are nothing short of stunning.
