Eye to I: Shapes in Stone

Eye to I. Jessica Blair

Pillars, arches, stained-glass windows, light—distinctive elements in church architecture. Churches are fascinating and photographing them allows me to see them in a different way. I like to work with what I encounter. I stand still and try to see what is really there. Angles become interesting and emphasize the building’s structure, I appreciate the nature of light, as it becomes part of the pillars and walls. I don’t need to change anything to capture the beauty of things as they are.

note: The two Gothic-Revival/Neo-Gothic churches in these photographs are Christ Church Cathedral, Montreal and Church of the Ascension of our Lord, Westmount.
