Reading Time: 5 minutes “I realised that, through photography, I could express myself as loudly as I wanted without feeling uncomfortable or feeling my ideas weren’t strong enough. That’s what photography gave me”
British Journal of Photography’s Ones to Watch platform is an annual, global talent search, which launched back in 2011.
Each year we reach out to editors, professors, directors, curators, writers, publishers, agents and photographers to nominate individuals at the start of their careers who are making outstanding work. After careful consideration, we select the finalists whose work we showcase in a dedicated Talent Issue.
Here you will find the archive of all our past nominees. Many of these individuals have gone on to develop thriving careers. Some of those names include Max Pinckers, Jack Davison, the late Ren Hang, Cemre Yesil, Nadine Ijewere, Shadman Shahid, Sanne De Wilde and Kennedi Carter, to name but a few. We are excited to enter the next decade of this celebration of emerging talent.
