Ostkreuz Agency

In autumn 1990, seven men and women who were some of the GDR’s most significant photographers, got together and established this photographer’s agency. Today, Ostkreuz is the most successful photographers’ run agency in Germany with 22 photographers. Almost all of them have been distinguished with national and international prizes. Each sees the world in their own way and thus, is interested in something else. Ostkreuz is an approach; it means confronting and working with reality. To detect and depict the core of things, thereby remaining sincere.
It means being genuine, nothing more, nothing less.

The images for Studio Aleppo [Berlin] were made by Sybille Fendt, Annette Hauschild, Tobias Kruse and Anne Schönharting.
