Unitarian Memorial Church

[singlepic id=1720 w=850 float=center]


I spent yesterday afternoon photographing the gorgeous Unitarian Memorial Church in Fairhaven, Massachusetts. It was built around the turn of the last century by the Number 2 man at Standard Oil, Henry Huttleston Rogers.

I contacted the Church’s Reverend Ann Fox after seeing the buildin a couple of weeks ago while I was in the area. After an email exchange and a review of my work, she was gracious enough to allow me to shoot.

As much as I was looking forward to it I was completely unprepared for all it had to offer. I was joined on the shoot by my good, Fran Coughlin, who acted as photo assistant and sherpa guide. We arrived around 1:45 and were greeted by Reverend Fox, who gave us a tour of the parish house and the church, then left us to our devices.

The images from the shoot will dominate the blog this week, starting with this one, which is actually the last image I shot yesterday. I wanted to start with an overview.

I hope you enjoy this series.

  1. One of my favorite subjects, and so well done, Bob! Love that green door, it adds a touch of life to the old stoic facility. Great composition and drama here, Bob, truly an awesome shot!
