Friederike von Rauche, Monastic

Majestically austere photographs of monastic interior spaces by Friederike von Rauch

Berlin-based artist Friederike von Rauch (born 1967) uses a medium-format camera to depict monastic interiors. Collected here, these photographs—absent of human figures with a delicate balance of light and dark—capture the contemplative power of monastic spaces without an emphasis on their religious context.
