Richard Silver‘s Impressive Vertical Panoramas of Churches

The interiors of religious structures are undoubtedly some of the most breathtaking architectural wonders of the world. Ornate atriums, elaborate altarpieces, vivid stained glass — photographer Richard Silver has been uniquely capturing these architectural wonders since be began photographing church ceilings in 2011. Creating a 180-degree experience, Silver shoots down the nave (center aisle) from the altar at the front, along the ceiling and down to the exit doors in the back. The resulting vertical panorama is a compilation of six to ten individual shots that Silver has digitally stitched together. Though he photographs cathedrals and basilicas around the world, Silver began the ‘Vertical Churches‘ project in his native New York City. Let your gaze drift heavenward to take in both the sheer scale and the intricate details of the vaulted ceiling.

Artists deserve respect. Even if it bothers you and you don't like their work; refrain from negative opinions, non-constructive remarks. Opt for an objective analysis of the work as well as a good understanding of the author's intentions..Thx
