Welome to the mothership. Actually, welcome to St. Joseph’s Church in Le Havre, France. Built from 1951-58 this Roman Catholic church built in a Neo-Gothic style acts as a memorial to the 5,000 civilians from the city who died during World War II. The sombre cement steeple rises over 350 feet and when photographed from the inside results in some pretty striking imagery that looks like it belongs on the set of Aliens or in Terry Gilliam’s Brazil. Many more photos here. (photos courtesy eole wind, olivier, pa_le, cyril, sebastien ferrand)
