Photographs of the Passion Facade of the basilica of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. The sculptures, by Josep Maria Subirachs, are a visual rendering of the last days of Christ from the Last Supper until his death. The final image is of the great internal spire of the basilica, which is of course the work of Antonio Gaudi.

This set of photographs appears in the book Vittoria Colonna, Selections from the Rime Spirituali, by Jan Zwicky and myself, publ. The Porcupine's Quill.

This series of photographs is dedicated to the memory of my wife Marian Moody, at whose request I visited and visually recorded the Sagrada Familia.
