Maurice Weiss & Tobias Kruse · Exhibition in Berlin

s it at all possible to capture the magic of a forest with something so technical as the photographic camera? What do photographers encounter when they walk into a forest that is symbolically charged. Or do artists think of something else than an accumulation of trees when they think of a forest? In the exhibition "Wald" 84 photographers deal with these questions, among them OSTKREUZ photographers Maurice Weiss and Tobias Kruse. „Wald“

After forty years of marriage and individual careers in photography this is their first collaborative project.

We grieve for Arno Fischer

You meant so much to all of us, as a mentor and as a friend. Arno Fischer (1927 - 2011).

Ute and Werner Mahler - „Mona Lisas“ now a book!

Between city and countryside, between being a child and being a woman: for their project "Mona Lisas of the suburbs" Ute and Werner Mahler photographed girls in transition. They have selected thirty of these portraits for a book that can now be ordered in our OSTKREUZ-Store. © Ute and Werner Mahler/OSTKREUZ

To produce the body of work, the Mahlers spent three years traveling across Europe, meeting their "Mona Lisas" in Liverpool, Minsk, Florence, Reykjavik and Berlin. Going to the suburbs, they waited for girls that had something mysterious and timeless in their faces. They portrayed them in their own surroundings, between buildings and meadows, but with an equipment used mostly in old photo studios: a plate camera, a black cloth, a tripod and a stool with a head rest. The girls took a seat on this stool and hinted at a smile, just like the model in the famous Renaissance painting.

The first "Mona Lisas of the suburbs" were shown as part of the OSTKREUZ exhibition "The City. Becoming and Decaying". The book published by Meier and Mueller contains a new and expanded selection of photographs and a text by architect and author Wolfgang Kil. Its print run is limited to 500 copies. In addition, there will be an edition of 50 copies with an extra print, and a limited edition box of 30 copies.
