A holy sight! Stunning panoramic images capture Parisian churches from dizzying perspectives
A stunning series of panoramas take viewers on a topsy-turvy journey through the churches of Paris, with intricate masonry and stained glass on show.
The images, taken by Richard Silver, from Brooklyn, New York, almost have a skeletal feel, as the rafters and ceiling beams are given centre stage.
Worshipers are seen sat in the pews at the Notre-Dame Cathedral with grey stone arches looming above, meanwhile the colourful windows at Saint-Gervais-et-Saint-Protais are difficult to miss.
Mr Silver told MailOnline Travel that he first got into photographing churches while in Manhattan and over the past six years he has captured more than 300 places of worship all over the world.
The photography technique involves taking multiple photographs which are digitally stitched together to create one seamless image.
Once a shoot is complete, Mr Silver pieces his photographs together in Photoshop and the finished panorama consists of between five and nine images. Scroll down to see shots from Mr Silver’s latest adventure in the French capital…
