Photomosaic of St. John Baptist de La Salle

This is an image of St. John Baptist de La Salle that was created from a large collection of photographs from around the Lasallian world. The further back you step from it, the more the image emerges. It illustrates the fact that the face of De La Salle today is present and lived through all those who are part of his educational heritage.

A Little More Information

A photomosaic is an image that is created from other images. The photos for this one came from over 1000 photographs taken by Scott Gibbs and Phillip Ruth in 1997 as they traveled the Lasallian world to create professional, short videos for the 1998 Convocation of Brothers and Partners in San Francisco. The free computer program used to create the mosaic is called AndreaMosaic. This particular photomosaic of St. John Baptist de La Salle was made in 2007 in preparation for the General Chapter in Rome, where it was used as a banner and liturgical theme. Subsequently, posters were created and shared throughout the schools as part of Brother vocation promotion efforts. Today, copies may be found in many educational institutions because of its visual appeal to young people and others.

Some posters remain and may be requested from the vocation office in Napa, or the image may be downloaded as a rather large (11.5 MB) PDF. For smaller images, it may be simplest to right-click the image on this page.
