Marily Stroux is living in Hamburg since 1978. She is documenting topics with her camera since 1985 which are not at all or only negatively present in public debates. Thereby, her art is connected with concrete confrontation and practical involvement.
About her art, Stroux says: "My photos don't claim to show 'the' truth. Although I put special emphasis on not manipulating situations.
It can be a single moment or meeting providing information about an actual mood or atmosphere. I can't talk 'about' people. You can't see their sorrows, fears, desires, disappointed hopes, their long ways in my pictures. What is most important for me is to visualize their existence."
