Sacred Spaces: a photography series on modernist churches by Thibaud Poirier

Thibaud Poirier is a Paris-based photographer fascinated by architecture and urban environments. In his series titled Sacred Spaces, Poirier has registered the awe-inspiring interior design of modern churches in different cities in Europe and Japan.

Architecturally, Thibaud Poirier was inspired by the astounding variety of church design. There are only but a few physical signs that bind them together: a visual focal point, usually but not always a cross, rows of seating trained on the visual cue, and a space clearly designed to spark wonder, reflection, devotion.
