MAUER magazine 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. Always looking for inspiring, provocative and unique images that go through all our senses, we invite all analog photographers to participate and jointly create MAUER magazine. In our first year, we chose to work with the 4 elements of nature, because they are the basis of everything that surrounds us. The earth is quickly associated with “Mother Earth”, the primal goddess, from whom everything comes and at the same time everything returns. The Earth symbolizes the feminine energy and also represents abundance, fertility, family, roots (along with the ancestral), strength, solidity and healing. Earth provides the stable environment from which all life springs, lives and prospers.
