Below we presents an amazing series of panoramic churches ceilings created New York photographer Richard Silver, entitled “New York Churches“. Each photo is a vertical panorama composed of 6-10 photos stitched together. Shooting from the pew to the exit door and back again, the dizzying 180-degree view wonderfully captures the intricate detail and design of each church’s ceiling.
