About British Journal of Photography:

Founded in 1854 to record the scientific development of a fledgling medium, these days BJP takes an international perspective on contemporary photography, focusing on fine art and documentary, and the cutting edge of editorial and commercial practices.

Each monthly edition (in print and iPad) focuses on a theme, including regular subjects such as Portraits, Education, Journeys and Community, and more esoteric ones such as Habitat or Small Town Inertia. We publish an annual review, Cool & Noteworthy, and an annual talent edition, Ones To Watch.

Each issue includes in-depth features and interviews. We seek out new talent to showcase in our Projects section, and in our Intelligence section we give you briefings and opinion on the latest thinking about the medium and how to make it work as a business.

For more than 160 years, British Journal of Photography has been inspiring people all over the world with incredible stories and images and with our iOS editions it has never been easier to stay in the know.

Still no landscape view

The last review to mention this is now a year old, but there is still no facility to rotate the app to landscape view, neither is there the ability to zoom. This is madness, as the content is superb and I want to see more than a tiny thumbnail image. The app also appears not to support dynamic text sizing so we are stuck with the rather small font, which I struggle to read on the iPhone screen.

This really should be fixed as the app could be an otherwise excellent add-on to the print subscription. I won’t be buying the iPhone subs for the time-being.

Unreliable app

Four months after significant problems when I first bought an annual subscription, the app wants to charge me for each issue.

The support staff have been helpful and charming but the subscription part of the app is hugely unstable.

An app providing an online magazine subscription should be pretty straightforward these days, so this is very disappointing.

Landscape format images do not display acceptably

Unfortunately, the iPad app can neither rotate nor zoom images. This means that landscape images have to be viewed in ‘segments’ dragging from page to page. Mark Power’s images in the April 2019 edition are pretty much unviewable. Disappointing.

Developer Response ,

Hello - thanks for your feedback on this. We're looking into the best way to show landscape images more effectively.
