f11 Magazine – Ernst Christen

If you don’t already subscribe to f11 Magazine, I would highly recommend it. Each issue features interviews with, along with portfolios of, three diverse photographers. Issue are free to either view online or download as PDFs. In the June 2016 issue, I am struck by the panoramic work of Ernst Christen (website).

Christen’s collection “Divine Projections” is composed of panoramic photos taken inside some of Europe’s most beautiful churches. For each shot, 26 photos are taken with a Nikon D800 and 20mm f/1.8 lens and stitched together in post. This technical approach provides viewers with what Christen hopes will be “a brief moment of concentrated tranquility.” I, for one, love the imperfect symmetry found in many of these when one looks carefully.
