In 2012, photographer Richard Silver started photographing the ceilings of churches in New York City. After some experimenting, Silver discovered that he could stitch 6-10 photos in Photoshop, creating a panorama.
However, instead of going from left to right, Silver’s panoramas went from top to bottom. These ‘vertical panoramas’ turned into an ongoing photo series and Silver has been capturing church ceilings around the world ever since.
Below you will find a small selection of Silver’s vertical church ceiling panoramas. You can find many more on his Behance page where you can also check out his other fantastic travel photography.
