With a founding date of 1854, BJP is the world’s oldest and longest running photography magazine. But age has not caused it to stagnate—as they say, it's ‘not your usual game of picture karaoke.’
BJP enters a new era with the latest issue. Diane Smyth took over as editor, with Ravi Ghosh as deputy editor, and the journal has become a quarterly. By publishing less frequently, BJP can quit the urgency and take time to reflect on how exhibitions were done, engage with new books in their physical mode, and, as for this issue, take up more space.
This issue focuses on Spatial Awareness, and they mean space in all its many forms: country, studio, identity, installation, and more. Argentinian photographer Sebastián Bruno is on the cover with shots from his adoptive home in Wales, and Tarrah Krajnak takes on history and place through photography installation.
