The New Synagogue

The New Synagogue in Dresden was built on the site of the former synagogue, which had been built according to plans by Gottfried Semper. This had been destroyed on November 9, 1938. The New Synagogue was inaugurated on November 9, 2001.

Stefan Lindner lives and works in Dresden, Germany. As a graduate engineer for furniture construction, he manufactured furniture in the Bauhaus style for a long time. Their straightness and functionality inspired him as a self-taught photographer since the late 90s to photograph modern architecture. Here it is the clearly structured facades of concrete, steel and glass that inspire him to design the photos in black and white, and in which he also often likes to abstract. In doing so, he tries to find the perspective that emphasizes the uniqueness of the building through detailed planning.
