Mauer is a bi-annual print publication that seeks to share and promote the work of emerging analog photographers from around the world. Each edition is based on a topic that works as a starting point to explore its representation through different perspectives.
We believe that analog photography, despite the technological advances introduced in the last couple of decades, is not something exclusively from the past but the most appropriate way we find to reveal against the daily maelstrom of a society that seeks the immediate.We consider paper as an esencial part of the process because we don't want to see how photos die as forgotten "jpg" file.
Issue 1 · Fire ∞ Water
In our first year, we chose to work with the 4 elements of nature, because they are the basis of everything that surrounds us.
We can experience fire in the form of heat through the sun or in direct flames. Its energy is vital and that is why this element is also associated with strength, passion and intuition.
Water, on the other hand, is associated with calmness, softness, constant movement, flow and emotions. We can find it within nature, falling in the form of rain or snow, flowing in seas and rivers, as well as a vital part of our own body.
We hope you let your imagination run wild and feel free when creating. Remember that the elements do not necessarily have to appear in the photographs directly, but can be evoked metaphorically and poetically.
