“In 1990 everything was changing. Everything was new. Everything. We founded Ostkreuz as a means of survival, as well as to bring together a group of like-minded individuals. In those early days we had no idea how to run an agency.” (Ute Mahler)

“We saw – and see – ourselves as documentary photographers, with a subjective approach. I acknowledge the inherent contradiction but we believe there is no objectivity. Each photographer has his or her own individual language and approach. Our work is never posed or constructed. We have no illusions.” (Ute Mahler) http://www.goethe.de/ins/gb/lp/prj/mtg/men/kun/ost/enindex.htm
