The Portal | Das Portal
The interface between the secular and the sacral
Since 500 years people at the West Portals of Cologne Cathedral move on the threshold between the worlds. Underneath the depictions of the Gospel, the apostels, the madonna and the three Magi (whose relics since the Middle Ages attract pilgrims from all over the world) human fates in search of salvation are reflected. At the gates you can catch a glimpse of catholic devoutness, revealing a hidden, hiding, almost invisibly practised faith.
Photographed in the years 2006 to 2013. The Portal is part of cycle Black East Wild West.
