Vertical Panoramic Photos Of New York Churches Inspired By Pope’s Visit
How do you capture the grandeur of a church in one shot? Richard Silver has done a good job of showing the greatness of New York churches. Inspired by Pope Francis’ visit to the US, he created a series of vertical panoramic photographs. They let you see the beautiful detail of churches from the entrance to the altar.
“Finding the perfect location in the center aisle then shooting vertically from the pew to the back of the church gives the perspective that only architecture of this style can portray,” Silver said online. “This is a technique that I have been working on for a few years now. It is a unique way of photographing church interiors through a vertical panorama.” Previously, Silver, who has been in photography full time since 2011, did the same for churches around the world.
