Through a glass, brightly
posted May 17, 2011
Here's something delightful: David Hinchen's photos of stained glass windows from churches in the Capital Region.
The Albany artist's Etsy shop includes a bunch of photos from local churches such as St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Troy, the Church of the Blessed Sacrament in Albany, and the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Albany. The window in the photo to the right, depicting Joan of Arc, is from St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Albany.
Hinchen has captured beautiful illumination of the windows. And it's interesting to be able to look so closely at the details in the scenes.
In addition to photography, Hinchen also does illustrations of buildings and architectural landscapes. Here's a portrait of the Miss Albany Diner that's available through his Etsy shop. A here's a portrait of The Palace. Some of his cityscapes are currently on display at The Stockade Inn in Schenectady (until June 30).
