For his work Deponie, Tobias Kruse set out in East Germany to search for the traces and scars of a time that still casts its shadow on the present: the years after reunification. A time that was rich in opportunities, but also brought disappointment, anger and bitterness for many. 30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the photographer and native of Mecklenburg drove 8,000 kilometers through eastern Germany. He traveled through empty countryside and villages, to full football stadiums and to nightly demonstrations. He photographed phenomena that can be as historical as they are contemporary and visited places that have entered the collective memory. His black and white photographs leave a dark, depressing feeling of unease. They are ciphers of grief and symbols of a painful historical process.
The photographer Tobias Kruse was born in Waren an der Müritz in 1979 and grew up in Schwerin. He has been a member of the Ostkreuz agency since 2011.
