Auslöser Issue 1



  • Interview with Friedl Kubelka, Brian Finke, Yanina Boldyreva, Wolfgang Zurborn
  • Behind the scenes at the famous publishing and print house STEIDL
  • In detail: Susse Frères Daguerréotype


In times when anything and everything needs to exist online and needs to be faster and faster, we go back to the essentials and feature long-form in-depth interviews and photo stories exclusively in printed form.

Out of personal interest and love of photography, I have come to know more and more photographers and listened to their stories. And over time, the idea of ​​creating a publication out of these stories has grown bigger and bigger. With Auslöser, we wish to slow down photography and offer a fresh publication form while presenting a variety of photographers in a reduced, unobtrusive way. We feature the people behind the camera.

We are very excited to present four interesting people in the first issue who clearly stand out and couldn’t be more contrastive, people who tell and do not shout: Friedl Kubelka, Brian Finke, Yanina Boldyreva and Wolfgang Zurborn. We got to visit a company behind the scenes that has formally shaped the photo book as it exists today: Steidl. In addition, we are presenting a camera in detail, celebrating the 180th anniversary of photography. I think that this is an appropriate occasion to do so.

I wholeheartedly thank all of our supporters, friends and colleagues and I hope you will enjoy reading and exploring the first issue.
