On a cold Sunday afternoon in January of 2013, we took the opportunity to shoot a tour of the Sint Bavo Church in Haarlem. We shot 3 locations around the church, giving the viewer the opportunity to explore all angles. Thanks to the cold weather the center of the city was almost deserted.
This church is an important landmark for the city of Haarlem and has dominated the city skyline for centuries. It is built in the Gothic style, and it became the main church of Haarlem after renovations in the 15th century made it significantly larger than the Janskerk (Haarlem). First mention of a church on this spot was made in 1307, but the wooden structure burned in the 14th century. The church was rebuilt and promoted to chapter church in 1479 and only became a cathedral in 1559.
