Sagrada Familia

I took these shots on 1200 ASA Kodak film with a Lomo, which explains the inky vignette. This overwhelming place looks more like a vision of hell than of heaven to me, and I think the grainy reproduction suits it well. The exteriors put me in mind of Rodin's Gates of Hell, and the charcoal-like interior shot makes me think of Piranesi's marvellously nightmarish Prison drawings.
