About British Journal of Photography

Founded in 1854 to record the scientific development of a fledgling medium, these days BJP takes an international perspective on contemporary photography, focusing on fine art and documentary, and the cutting edge of editorial and commercial practices. Each monthly edition (in print and iPad) focuses on a theme, including regular subjects such as Portrait, Education, Journeys and Community, together with our annual review, Cool & Noteworthy, and our annual talent edition, Ones To Watch, along with more esoteric subjects, such as Invisible World, Habitat and Tales of the City, complemented by in-depth interviews and articles.

For each issue, we seek out new talent to showcase in our Projects section, alongside Interviews with more established names – the kind of photographers who’ve already left an indelible mark on our visual memory – together with reports on the latest trends. In our Intelligence section, we give you briefings and opinion on the latest thinking about the medium and how to make it work as a business.

Ones To Watch, invites recommendations from a network of experts from around the world. And in addition to devoting a special issue to the annual selection, a multimedia version has been shown at festivals including Rencontres d’Arles, Photo España and Cortona on the Move.

Recently we joined the European Photography Platform (EPP), an EU-funded project run across 10 countries to promote emerging talent across the continent. We will stage an exhibition of Europe-based talents during Photo London this spring and will collaborate with our EPP partners for a larger-scale show at Unseen Amsterdam in September.

Our website, BJP-Online.com, publishes new stories daily, reaching 200,000 visitors per month, and more than 3.8 million through our social channels.

In addition, we run numerous events and exhibitions, including Portrait of Britain, seen by more than 20 million people, and the International Photography Award, which gives a solo show to a photographer or collective at TJ Boulting
