Maurice Weiss is a German photographer, member and founder of the Ostkreuz agency in Berlin.
Maurice presented the work of Mila Teshaieva, who uses photography to witness the still undergoing transition of ex-Soviet countries. Formerly an economist, she then turned to photography and produced several projects: the war aftermath in Georgia, HIV/AIDS in Ukrain, asylum seekers in Germany, the aftermath of Indian tsunamis. Through her photographs, she shows the everyday life of the countries’ inhabitants, with a touching simplicity, while yet giving the images the grandeur of paintings.
These last few years, she has been traveling through caucasian and caspian regions. Her work resulted in her first monography, Promising Waters, and a book, “Faces and Stories of Entrepreneurs”. In her work, Mila Teshaieva focuses on the combination of fragility and power in an individual.
