St Trinitas Church Leipzig

The consecration of a new church in May 2015 was the end of an odyssey for a Leipzig parish community that has lasted for over seventy years. With the construction of the new building by Schulz & Schulz architects, St Trinitas has returned to the center of the city: pro­m­inently situated right across from the monumental town-hall built in 1905. A series of about 120 carefully selected photographs follow the continuous changes at the construction-site between 2012 and 2015. The evolving new architecture also provides the backdrop for a selection of portraits: teenagers celebrating their holy confirmation, workmen of multinational origin as well as the artists that were commissioned to develop works for the building. By integrating a number of additional photographs from different artistic projects into the flow of the series, Joachim Brohm and Valentina Seidel de­velop an unexpected and complex visual nar­rative, lead­ing viewers far beyond the boundaries of conventional documentation.
