The British Journal of Photography is a historic photography magazine that publishes in-depth articles, photographer profiles, analysis and reviews.
Born in 1854 with the name of Liverpool Photographic Jorunal, it took on its current name in 1860 becoming the second longest-running photographic magazine in the United Kingdom after the Photographic Jorunal.
ISSUE 7907 - LOVE/UKRAINE
This edition of the British Journal of Photography is divided into two parts. The first part is animated by our main theme, Love, with an evocative portrait of Marco Zanella on the cover.
If you turn the magazine over you will find a second cover, shot by Ukrainian photographer Yelena Yemchuk. It includes a special section devoted to stories about identity, culture, photography and the new Ukrainian reality of war.
Perhaps one of the most human emotions, love permeates so much of what we do. It has inspired and consumed artists for centuries and is no different for photographers today. We hear about it from Marco Zanella, Youqine Lefèvre, Karla Hiraldo Voleau, Dayanita Singh Simon Baker - the curator of MEP's dazzling photo ballad show, Love Songs. We visit Ed and Deanna Templeton's home studio in Huntington Beach, California to get a feel for their "claustrophobic relationship". And in our Intelligence section, we ask what naked selfies can represent in terms of self-love and empowerment. Plus, find our selection of the most exciting books to keep an eye on.
In the section devoted to Ukraine, we explore the work that was carried out in anticipation of the Russian invasion and as a result of it. Mark Neville shares his new book and call to action, Stop Tanks with Books. Caimi & Piccinni document a nation preparing for war. And Yelena Yemchuk captures Ukrainian youth in Odesa. Kateryna Radchenko highlights Ukraine's new photojournalists and in a round table Anton Shebetko, Yulia Krivich and Pavlo Borshchenko discuss the role of art and photography in the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.
