Georg Kürzinger

PARADE OF SAINTS (Germany, 2004-2007)

Some religious rituals manage to survive in a secularized Europe - for instance, in Germany, where centuries-old processions are still held annually in many places. In these plays lay people usually act the roles of the Christian saints, depicting them in a manner as amateurish as it is theatrical. Georg Kürzinger photographed a number of these processions in Bavaria. He selected this state especially because by his own admission the present Pope, Benedict XVI, has the roots of his faith there.
