New York Churches by Richard Silver

View all 9 Photos

Photographer Richard Silver has demonstrated how modern technology can capture the majesty of the past. In his series of photographs of the interiors of New York churches, Silver uses a 180-degree technique to provide a vertically panoramic view of the church’s ceiling as taken from a vantage point from the center aisle of the church. Beauty, as fair to all denominations, reveals itself in Catholic, Orthodox, and Episcopal churches alike. In the photograph of the Trinity Church on Wall Street and Broadway, the stained glass at the apse points to the elaborate wooden framework above and mirrors the grand pipe organ at the other end of the nave. The warm golden hues from within the churches and the vaulted and painted ceilings are a heavenly sight to behold in awe and humble deference.
