Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia on Seleniumed Lith
We went to Barcelona at the end of 2010 and visited Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia again. Wonderful to see this building evolving every couple of years. It’s such a fascinating creature! If you ever get the chance to visit it, please do. Despite the price of the tickets it is sooo definitely worth it (also because it enables the build to move forward)!
I am working on an exhibition with the theme “Light creates Life” or something in that spirit. This series came to mind as light is so important to a building, and most certainly this one with its high ceilings and beautiful glass-in-lead (stained?) windows. Anyway, see for yourself if you like them for the same reasons I did. Different reasons are also fine though 😉
All the photos are made using a Hasselblad 500CM with 80mm CF 4,0. Film used: Kodak T-Max 100. Developer used: Kodak HC110 Dil. B.
While the 2 former posts I had my reservations regarding color, with these I simply love it. It works very well for this as the building itself is also very warm with the materials used and the colors that are created by the colored glass in the windows. This conveys the feeling the building gave me spot-on!
Next step: printing them on 30×40 paper and framing them for the exhibition. Wanted to go bigger but the frames have to stay a bit affordable…so..here’s my concession 😉 Anyway, once framed I’ll post the result. I’m looking forward making them, seeing them, everything!
