Vertical Churches: an ethereal architecture photography series by Richard Silver

Boynton Beach, Florida-based American photographer Richard Silver travels around the world — to cities such as Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Cochabamba, Paris, Rome, and Munich — to capture breathtaking vertical-panoramic photos of Catholic churches roofs.

Having been to hundreds of Churches and Cathedrals around the world in my many years of travel, I have only recently figured out this unique way of photographing and capturing the inner beauty of their architecture. 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. Each photograph consists of  6-10 photos merged together in Photoshop as a Vertical panorama.
