DETAILS:

Rising from the modest surroundings on the Venetian island of Guidecca, Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore (Church of the Most Holy Redeemer), commonly referred to Il Redentore, is an absolute masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. A plague which began in 1575 was decimating Venice and in 1576 the Senate asked for divine assistance vowing to build a church dedicated to the Redeemer. The plagued ended in 1577 and in fulfilling their vow and giving thanks for deliverance, the first cornerstone of the Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore was laid in May of 1577 and the church was consecrated in 1592. I chose to capture the Chiesa del Santissimo Redentore with a long exposure to highlight its enduring permanence which reveals its magnificence, in both physical and spiritual form, and pay honor to the devotion of the Venetian faithful.
