Softly Lit Synagogue

Bathed in afternoon light, this capture of a softly lit synagogue moves the viewer towards a sense of unity as found in arches created with a spirit of holy intention. 

Topics: Reflections, Sacred Spaces, Photography

​The strong line of the wood with its illuminated edge starting in the bottom right corner divides this Shpeizer photograph of a softly lit synagogue almost into two images. Light spilling across the image from the side window directs our attention to the central arch, where unity is found again.
