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.

Visually pleasing, with issues

Visually excellent with first class content, and the interface is basic but fine.


1) Most pages cannot be zoomed in. This is a problem for a photography magazine as sometimes we want to see detail, especially on smaller devices.

2) When exiting the app and returning, you return to the beginning not where you left off.

3) There doesn't seem to be a way to delete old editions to free space.

3) I've noticed that when a few editions have been downloaded the app crashes, scrambling the iPad pro's search screen and affecting the keyboard. This has happened twice and it seems it's the app.

These points aside, the content is excellent and the app, thus, recommended.

EDIT: have had to reduce the rating as this app crashes often - it doesn’t open, you have to reinstall it for it function, then it occurs again a few days later. It appears unstable. What a shame.

The content is great but the app keeps crashing and constantly needs reinstalling.

It also needs a function that allows you to remove downloaded issues.

I am fuming about this as they advertised access for just £1, supposedly to help us all out during Covid-19, but do not make it clear that they will then charge you the full price after 3 months. It’s disgraceful, with no obvious way to cancel access from within the app or via the website. I cannot recommend, especially given the appalling quality of half the photos in the magazine and the pretentiousness of the copy. Furious!
