I love La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. I love the artistic expression of architecture, and I love the architecture of Antonio Gaudi, perhaps Barcelona's most famous architect and artist. There are several facades to La Sagrada Familia, and this particular sculpture is from the Passion facade. This is specifically the scourging of Jesus before he is crucified, and I was able to get this photograph. I set up the photograph so that his name, Jesus, would appear in the photograph as a reminder of who this is.
Although the facade was imagined by Gaudi, it was Josep Maria Subirachs who brought it to life. His ability to capture the drama of the passion is evident in all the work he has done for this facade.

I took this photograph using a Sony A7RII with a metabones adapter, with an EF-70-200m f/4L II lens set at 87mm. I shot this photograph at f/5.6, 1/640sec at ISO 100.
You can purchase this photograph on my Fine Arts America site here.
