Welcome to 1854 Access: the ultimate career toolkit for photographers.
We’re making some changes to the way we do things. Every two months, we’ll be selecting a single, unifying theme to run across all of our content, awards and commissions.
Developed in direct response to Members’ feedback, this new approach is designed to maximise your benefits while investigating some of the most important issues of our time.
The theme of Humanity & Technology marks the latest issue of BJP. Technology is rapidly transforming the way we make, view and understand images, but how will this affect the photography industry and practice in the future?
Considering these questions, we speak to David Vintiner, Gem Fletcher, Sara Cwynar, Oliver Chanarin, Richard Mosse, Josèfa Ntjam, Coca Dai, RAKE Collective, Rhiannon Adam and many more. In Intelligence, we interrogate how accessible the new virtual art spaces really are for those with disabilities.
Plus, we are in the studio with Theo Simpson, and On Location in Silicon Valley: San Francisco.
