Auslöser * is a biannual, bilingual (German & English) indie print magazine that focuses on the human stories behind the camera. Each issue features four in-depth photographer interviews, one company portrait behind the scenes and one camera in detail.
By photographers for photographers. Auslöser is divided into three sections. The first section includes four long-form interviews with selected photographers. Stylistically, categorically, in terms of origin and age, four personalities are put together in very high contrast to create strong, exciting views.
Despite a rather modest budget, Auslöser seeks to fight against any unpaid contributions especially ubiquitous on the internet by remunerating every photographer for presenting their pictures and their time.
The second section shows a company, a workshop, a printing house, a photo studio, a darkroom, and much more behind the scenes and offers insights into otherwise invisible areas.
The third section portrays one camera per issue, with a focus on the aesthetics, less on the technical aspect. Here, especially the artistic realisation is considered.
In the first issue Auslöser features Friedl Kubelka (AT), Yanina Boldyreva (RU), Wolfgang Zurborn (DE), and Brian Finke (US). Auslöser presents the famous STEIDL photobook publishing and print house in Germany and portrays one selected camera from the WestLicht camera museum in detail.
