A Kaleidoscopic Look at the Interiors of La Sagrada Família

New, 1 comment

With the construction on La Sagrada Família finally nearing completion after 130 long, tortuous years, Barcelona-based photographer Clement Celma took a look at the naturally kaleidoscopic interiors of the basilica, pointing the camera straight upward to capture the stunning, symmetrical layouts of the naves. Antonin Gaudí died in 1926, when the project was less than a quarter complete, but it's clear from Celma's work just how meticulously his original plans were preserved by the team of architects, engineers, and sculptors who've devoted their lives to working on it: every column in its precise place, no surface flat, lush and detailed ornamentation. Another look, below.
