German photographer Robert Götzfried has published his latest series on the original high-tech wall of sound: church organ pipes

Living in a city where it is hard to find some quiet and peace, I more and more chose to go to churches to get away from this constant noise and stress of the city life. The more churches I went to the more often I thought that I want to shoot a series of church organs.
• His site has lots of other great collections, from Cambodian barber shops to bowling alleys.
