About 1854

1854 is a multi-award winning digital media company that sits at the intersection of photography and everything.

We publish British Journal of Photography — the world’s oldest and most influential photography title. We are home to some of the photography industry’s most prestigious awards. And our in-house agency connects the best photographic talent with major international brands to produce game-changing visual campaigns.

British Journal of Photography

Through the lenses of world-class photographers, British Journal of Photography explores rich and timely stories of art, culture, politics and society. BJP sets the bar for photographic journalism — and has done ever since writers like Arthur Conan Doyle and George Bernard Shaw first graced our pages in the 1800s.

Access BJP content digitally, via 1854.photography, as well as in our newly structured print magazine: now an expertly crafted bi-monthly publication dedicated to a compelling theme of our time. Together, the 6 annual editions will resemble a premium-quality, 1200 page photobook.
