The City – Becoming and Decaying
Hatje Cantz Verlag / Ostfildern, Germany
The photographers of the OSTKREUZ Agency have sought this city at all ends of the earth—in the slums of Manila, on the façades of Las Vegas, in the ruins of Gaza, in the steppe of Inner Mongolia, in the center of Detroit, in the ideal of Auroville, in the longing for Atlantis, among the Mona Lisas of the world’s suburbs, and several other places. The concept of the book was developed in cooperation with the 18 photograhers of the agency. Texts are designed like eMails send home by the photographers.
