The Churches series (2009) is realized in Amsterdam, a new and unfamiliar environment with different cultural coding. In Churches, the photographed churches no longer serve as sacred spaces, but have been turned into public spaces for social activities, such as reception halls, or music and dance clubs. By intentionally using only sparse natural light, these spaces are invested with a sacredness and atmosphere they no longer possess through their function.
