CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The early churches of New England hold a special place in the American
consciousness, revered for their physical beauty, simplicity, and elegance and
for their role in the early history of this country. Places of worship they
were and are, but they are also icons of a particularly American sensibility
and artistic vision.
Photographer Steve Rosenthal has traveled throughout the northeast capturing
the gems of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and tracing the evolution
of church styles from the early, dramatically simple meetinghouse form through
the changing patterns of Greek and Gothic revivals. His photographs capture the
intrinsic beauty of the architecture while creating a world of rich order and
rational light. He has frozen in time the New England buildings that may soon
be—or have already been—lost in a chaotic, contemporary world.
