Photographer's Note

La Sagrada Familia - a large Roman Catolic church in Barcelona, Spain, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi (1852–1926).

The construction begun in 1882 and still to this day remains unfinished! In 1926 at the time when Gaudi died, less than a quarter of the project was complete. In 2010 construction passed the mid-point and an anticipated completion date in 2026 — the centennial of Gaudí's death.

When questioned on unusual long construction period, Gaudi replied: "My client - meaning God - is not in a hurry."
