St. John's Anglican Church (Lunenburg, Nova Scotia)

When St. John's Anglican church caught fire and burned, in 2001, I was able to get permission to photograph the ruins 11 days after the fire; the church is now reconstructed, and as beautiful as ever.

While I wasn't specifically trying to copy any of the  post-fire images I'd made, I can't deny they were in my mind's eye as I worked. The building looked lovely, and while I knew it was a reconstruction, it had the feel and tone of the original, which was quite something to behold.

Overall, this was a great session - I quite enjoyed working in the space, and in contrast to my older monochrome images, the colour images give a wonderful sense of the luminous qualities of the building.
