BEAUTY: Photography--Alejandro Almaraz

Playing off of yesterday's post about the misty memories of painter Helen Carter's work (seen here), Alejandro Almaraz mines public sites and gathers many photographs of famous churches and monuments to form a sort of kaleidoscope of specific memories about particular places...a collective group perception collage if you will of, say, Sainte-Chapelle in Paris or the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona...

Top to bottom: The Basilica of Saint Peter; La Sagrada Familia; Napoleon's Tomb at Les Invalides; Pantheon; Sainte-Chapelle; The Siena Cathedral; The Sistine Chapel
