Photographers from East Germany founded an agency OSTKREUZ in 1990. Maik Reichert's film tells the photographers' story with and without the Wall.
Maik Reichert, Brigitte Kramer
Shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall seven photographers from East Germany founded their own agency OSTKREUZ in 1990. The basic idea: a collective, with security in authorship. Soon Ostkreuz became the most important photo agency in Germany. Now, they have 18 members from East and West. One thing unites them: a humanistic worldview. Berlin based filmmaker Maik Reichert accompanies OSTKREUZ since many years. His film tells the photographers' story with and without the Wall.
