Sophie Langohr

[St. Matthew by Jeremias Geißelbrunn (1595–1660), photographed like Dimitris Alexandrou by Errikos Andreou], from the series Glorious Bodies

Sophie Langohr uses all the artifices of professional shooting and studio work to transfer the glory and fame of the models and celebrities of today to these saints carved by Jeremias Geißelbrunn in around 1640 for the Friars Minor Conventual Church in Cologne, now standing on corbels in the St. Nicholas Church in Eupen. Here are the icons of the Apostles, posing for this unexpected second (of) eternity. [...]
St. Matthew, the dark introverted one, has only to get a tatoo of a living dead on the shoulder or a Christ-like face crowned with thorns on the arm to fully resemble the Greek model Dimitris Alexandrou. (Jean-Michel Botquin)
