1854 Access. Making the most of your Membership.

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.

Power & Empowerment

In our latest issue of the BJP, we explore the idea of empowerment. We consider the individual experience, as well as the collaborative and universal one.

Our features include the compelling work of Rahim Fortune, Cansu Yıldıran, Donna Ferrato, Sadie Catt, Igor Furtado, Angelica Elliott. And, Rafal Milach and Karolina Gembara unpack the rise of creative protest movements in Poland.

Elsewhere, we visit the studio of Suzie Howell in east London and look back at the history of women’s rights over their bodies, as has been documented in photography. We are also On Location in Athens, exploring the city’s image-making scene.

In awards, Female in Focus is back for its third edition, Back for its third edition,  championing the work of world-class women and non-binary photographers across the world.
