Sacred Landscape

The series Sacred Landscape investigates the relationship between sacred architecture and its surroundings. 12 black glass ambrotypes placed in wooden boxes padded with black velvet highlight the eternity of sacred architecture created by transient human beings: the word „ambrotype” derives from the ancient Greek word „ambrotos” – that means „immortal”. The sacred architecture was among others created for the reminiscence of the Memento Mori doctrine, the teaching utilized in Christianity.
