12 Awe-Inspiring “Vertical Photos” of the World’s Most Beautiful Churches

You've never seen the gems of Christendom like this before!

Richard Silver / ChurchPOP

Having been to hundreds of churches in my many years of travel I have only recently figured out this unique style of photographing and capturing the inner beauty of their interiors. 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 form can portray. Each photograph consists of 5-9 shots merged together as a vertical panorama.

You can buy prints of these pictures and many others on my website.

The name of the church and its location is in the caption. Click on any image to view it full size. Enjoy!
