British Journal of Photography: The Portrait Issue

In the latest issue of British Journal of Photography, we ruminate on the portrait. We consider the fraught history of portrait photography through the work of Sasha Huber, whose image graces this issue’s cover. The original images of Jack and Drana were taken in 1850, commissioned by Louis Agassiz. These photographs, along with portraits of five other people from their community, came to be recognised as the first-known photographs of enslaved individuals.


Also featured are new works from Kalpesh Lathigra, Eva O’Leary, Aneesa Dawoojee, Jialin Yan, Genesis Báez and Anne Vetter. The late William Klein is remembered by the words of David Campany. And Brett Rogers, the departing director of The Photographers’ Gallery, London, is our Any Answers. 

Elsewhere, we visit the bubble-wrapped studio of Neo Matloga in Amsterdam, and find out about the censorship and resource challenges faced by the photography community in Vietnam. We are on location in Rio with photographer Igor Furtado. Curator Brian Piper unpacks the under-represented history of Black American studio photography, plus there’s our pick of the best books to look out for this winter.

  • Our Ethos

    Duality is in our DNA — our founders self-describe as polar opposites — but our vision for championing accessibility, diversity, and equality in the art world is a shared one. It informs everything we do, from the prints we sell to the stories we tell. Art is for everyone and there is no one way to be a collector.

  • Sustainability

    Although we’re not perfect, we do pride ourselves on our packaging. We use as little as possible and have worked hard to find the most environmentally-friendly packaging on the market.

    Our poster tubes and print boxes are eco-friendly, made from recycled content and fully recyclable. On occasion, to improve our carbon footprint, our prints will be shipped direct from our printers in co-branded packaging.

IN MY WORLD, THE BOOKS WOULD BE NOTHING BUT PICTURES. IN MY WORLD, THE BOOKS WOULD BE NOTHING BUT PICTURES

ECO PACKAGING


We’ve worked hard to find the most environmentally-friendly packaging on the market. Our books are wrapped in recyclable cardboard sleeves and fastened with paper-based tape. Our tape is water activated, so no need for any nasty adhesives or plastics. It’s made from 100% recycled content and printed with soy ink. 


Our print boxes and poster tubes are also made from recycled cardboard and are fully recyclable. Finally, our tissue paper is - you guessed it -recycled, eco-friendly and vegan. It's PH neutral and approximately 35% of the electrics used to make it is produced from renewable energy.


Not a bad start 🌱
