Inspired by the pope’s visit to NYC in 2015, acclaimed photographer Richard Silver created a series of Verticle Panorama images of NYC’s most beautiful churches. They’re amazing.
New York photographer Richard Silver’s collection of vertical church panoramas are absolutely breathtaking. Literally turning the idea of a panorama on its head, Silver offers you a perspective into the churches you would probably never see unless you were there in person …and without the sore neck.
These NYC church images, composed from 6-10 shots, are only a quick dip into this project, Silver has been around the world taking verticle church photos, see more HERE.
Even though he only became a full-time photographer in 2011, Silver’s work has been featured by companies such as United Airlines, Tiffany and Co., UN Aids Organization, IKEA, and many more. It seems like he was born to be behind the lens, his camera taking him to over 270 cities where he has documented architecture using Tilt Shift and Time Slice as well as the Vertical Panoramas you are about to see.
His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Skyscraper Museum, LaGrange Art Museum and Krause Gallery in New York. Enjoy this NYCcentic quick dive into his work:
