What started off as something called a Digital Postcard with perhaps 100-150 images of the Basilica has blossomed into (though I say it myself) a beautiful DVD based around over 250 images all set to music and packaged in a gorgeous cover.
Launch date is set for October 22nd when I will pick up the first edition from the printer in south Jersey and hot-foot them down to Washington where they will be put on sale in the Basilica shop.
If you look very closely at what will be the back of the cover you will see a montage of 25 different Madonnas which is being published as a poster. I have not seen a hard copy proof but if it looks anything like the digital file it will be absolutely stunning.
Both items will be on sale in the Basilica and eventually they will be available from the Basilica online store. In the meantime we have a limited number available for purchase from our website.

I'm nearing completion of a new and exciting project involving images of the Basilica of the National Shrine in Washington DC. Although it is home to some fine stained glass, including windows by Charles Connick from the 1920's, the Basilica is far better known for mosaics and I believe boasts the largest collection of any building in the world.
Here is a link to a small selection of images of some of the mosaics.
Watch this space for further details of the project....

OK, I know that this is way overdue but better late than never...there is a new folder with photographs of the beautiful windows at the Second Reformed Church in Hackensack, NJ in the Buildings folder at StainedGlassPhotography.com
There are some other images which I intend to add including some of stained glass from the extensive collection at Glencairn Museum in PA. In addition I am now working on a project for the National Basilica in the course of which I have been documenting not only stained glass but also some of the gorgeous mosaics which comprise what I believe to be the largest collection of mosaics anywhere in the world.
