Photographer's Note

Here is a detail of the St. Alexander's Church, a Roman Catholic church on the Three Crosses Square in Warsaw. It was constructed in the years 1818–25 in Neoclassical style. In 1886–95 the church was rebuilt in Neo-Renaissance style, resulting in a much larger building with two prominent towers and a large dome. With these changes, the building became one of the largest in Warsaw.

The church was destroyed during World War II, in the course of the Warsaw Uprising. In the years after the war it stood as a ruin while debates were conducted over whether to rebuild it to its prewar appearance, or to its original appearance before reconstruction. In the end, the church was rebuilt between 1949 and 1952 in a form similar to its original design. (More on: Wikipedia)
