The launch of Issue #3 comes as British Journal of Photography has increased its readership over 12 times with the launch of its bespoke iPad app. Reaching out to a global audience for the first time in its 158-year history, the app has now been downloaded over 100,000 times.
Issue #3 is an all-star affair, featuring interviews with some of contemporary photography's biggest stars - including Roger Ballen, South Africa's most idiosyncratic shooter, who talks through his journey from documentary to staged photography plus his latest project: a pop video for South Afrikan rap-rave group Die Antwoord;Boris Mikhailov, long-time enfant terrible of Russian photography, explains how his restless experimentalism is linked with the history of the Soviet and post-Soviet era, plus Paolo Roversi presents why his studio is "a little space for the imagination". Lise Sarfati discusses her latest project, She, and acclaimed portraitist Steve Pyke explains his unusual inspirations - philosophy, cinema and the moon.
The latest issue also includes an exclusive feature on how photographers and writers are working together, a look at Martin Parr's latest local photography commission, and an analysis of what went wrong at Kodak. Our technical reports include reviews of Canon's sexy new 300mm f/2.8 lens, which is optimised for video capture, and its G1X compact camera.
Issue #3 of the BJP app can be downloaded now through iTunes for £6.99/€7.99/$9.99. A 50 page preview is also available to download free. A six-month subscription is also available at the launch offer price of £9.99/€10.99/$13.99.
