Vertical Panoramic Images of New York Churches by Richard Silver

Photographer Richard Silver has an unusual way of looking at architecture, building composite photographs from various images that seamlessly show a structure’s interior. His new photo series captures the insides of New York churches and ideally timed for the Pope’s arrival on U.S. soil. These photographs are created of 6-10 shots, making a vertical panorama.

“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,” says Silver.

Although Silver has been to numbers of churches throughout his career and many years of travel, it’s only lately that he figured out how to capture the broad inner harmony of their architecture.
