25 OSTKREUZ Un Anniversaire à Paris

2015 marks the 25th anniversary of OSTKREUZ, which will be celebrated right where it all began – in Paris, where a large exhibition will showcase the best works from the agency’s 25-year history.

In spring of 1990, seven East German photographers met in a bistro at Les Halles to launch their own agency. They called it OSTKREUZ after a metro station that connects the East of Berlin with the rest of the city. The name heralds a new departure: from the East in all directions.

Today, OSTKREUZ has twenty members between the ages of 30 and 65, from Germany and all over Europe. They combine journalism and art, working both independently and on contract.
