The City: Becoming and Decaying – Photo Projection

by OSTKREUZ Agency of Photographers

Boom, bust, repeat? Few exhibitions have captured urban life cycles better than The City: Becoming and Decaying, in which 18 Ostkreuz photographers showed select moments they’d captured around the world. Revisiting 20 years of urban documentation, Ostkreuz invites you to see the city through the photographer’s eye.

Germany’s most successful photographer-run agency was founded in the post-wall Berlin of 1990. Though working across a wide thematic spectrum, its 21 members are linked by their genuine approach to photography and deep understanding of the medium’s entanglement with the (urban) realities around us.
