Artist Statement

One of the reasons I became a photographer is my love for places. As a photographer you have the license to be curious. I am always very happy when I am allowed access to places that I would not usually have seen or would not be allowed to visit exclusively.

Theaters like Cinema Paris are temple-esque by intention, places of worship for film buffs, fans, and escapists alike. Eirich’s photograph leans into that vibe. The image is dominated by rich, regal jewel tones hinting at the holy, and golden, saintlike light streaming from the stage, a sliver of heavenly white canopy hovering overhead ...
