The Escape ≈ La fuite © CHANT WAGNER 2016
If France is publicly not very religious, it's nevertheless kept its churches as places to stroll in, but also as islands of quiet...
Some prefer to read a good book in the nave of the church rather than sit on a bench in a garden. Others rest their eyes. Some others still gaze at all the art. A few come with the purpose of a private conversation with saints and god. All bodies speak different languages.
There are all sorts of reasons for entering a church nowadays outside of religious services. At the very least it is still a moment of escape from the mundanity of life.
