A New York photographer and avid traveler is showing off unique vertical panoramic pics of some of the world’s most famous cathedrals.
Professional photographer Richard Silver, the owner of richardsilverphoto.com, has been fascinated by cathedral architecture ever since he was a boy growing up in the Big Apple. As a child, Silver often craned his neck to see the intricate murals atop many of NYC’s most famous churches.
Although he admired the artistry of these ceiling designs in person, Silver knew there must be a more comfortable way to enjoy these masterpieces. So, Silver set to work using his skills in photography and technology to capture this magic of cathedral architecture for the world to enjoy.
Using Photoshop stitching, Silver has been able to put together extremely unique vertical panoramic images of cathedrals from around the world. In total, Silver has captured at least 300 different churches from well over 30 countries.
Out of the approximately 450 churches Silver has visited in his life, some of his favorites include Paris’s Basilique Notre-Dame Du Perpétuel Secours and, of course, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in his hometown. Even though he’s seen and taken pictures of so many churches, Silver says he is still excited every time he gets to put together a new photo for his collection.
Anyone interested in viewing this collection can check out free images under the “Vertical Churches” tab on Silver’s main website. Silver also has many other photos from his travels available on this website from countries like Japan, France, Italy, and Vietnam.
