The church becomes modern in the project “Sacred Spaces”

Not all churches are equal and not all churches are ancient. In the Sacred Spaces series, Thibaud Poirier captured the beauty of the most modern in Europe.

In the common imagination, sacred places, churches, are always connected to something old, ancient, that survives the passage of time, that was before us and that will resist once we are gone. The photographic project Sacred Spaces by the French photographer Thibaud Poirier dispels this common thought. 

At the heart of the photographic research of the latter project are, in fact, the modern churches of Europe, those that have lost both the exterior and interior appearance of the classical ones, but that are still places that continue to give us the feeling that there is something greater than us. 

Looking at the shots of Sacred Spaces it will be natural to compare one to the other, the stylistic scene makes it easier, indeed, imposes it. All the churches are shot from the same point of view, which allows you to show in one shot only the entire environment.
