Publisher's Description

The consecration of a new church for St. Trinitas in May 2015 marks the end of an odyssey for a Leipzig parish community that lasted for over 70 years. A series of about 100 photographs by German photographic artists Joachim Brohm and Valentina Seidel follow the changes at the construction site during construction. The evolving architecture provides the backdrop for a selection of portraits: teenagers at confirmation, workmen, and artists commissioned to develop works for the building. By integrating photographs from different artistic projects into the series, Brohm and Seidel develop an unexpected and complex visual narrative. Essay by Karen Irvine, chief curator at MOCP, Chicago. Seidel is known for her interest in intimate but unsettling portraits; internationally recognized German New Topographics artist Brohm introduced color into the photo conversation in the late 1970s. His work is internationally collected and can be found at MoMA, NY, AIC, SFMOMA, and the Metropolitan Museum, NY, among others.
