British Journal of Photography

The British Journal of Photography are the official media partner for FORMAT17. In their latest issue they have explored the festival's theme of HABITAT. The magazine features an interview with Jon Tonks about his continued examination of the remnants of colonialism, this time through the ‘cargo cults’ of Vanuatu, and with John MacLean about his travels around the world to photograph the hometowns of the artists who most influenced him. Hester Keijser, co-curator of FORMAT's headline exhibition Ahead still lies our future discusses the work in the exhibition, addressing the notion of the anthropocene, and British Journal of Photography writer, Tom Seymour, travels to visit the world’s longest-running portrait studio in Derby, whose recently discovered archive is showing at the festival. The magazine also includes features with some of the work from FORMAT's open call; meets the people behind Flâneur, a travelling photography project that has taken over city centres across Europe before heading to its final destination in Derby and features an interview with the winner of the British Journal of Photography's International Photography Award winner, Daniel Castro Garcia.


Established in 1854, British Journal of Photography is the world’s longest-running photography magazine, placing an emphasis on innovation and invention; the concepts and creative processes that inspire those rare photographs that have the power to grab and hold your attention. Unlike other photography magazines, who have a tendency to focus on the latest gear and equipment, the British Journal of Photography pride themselves on showcasing work from photographers all over the globe with different themed issues every month.
