BJP-Logo-White
Through the lenses of world-class photographers, British Journal of Photography explores rich and timely stories of art, culture, politics and society. BJP sets the bar for photographic journalism — and has done ever since writers like Arthur Conan Doyle and George Bernard Shaw first graced our pages in the 1800s.

Access BJP content digitally, via 1854.photography, as well as in our newly structured print magazine: now an expertly crafted bi-monthly publication dedicated to a compelling theme of our time.
