The British Journal of Photography has relaunched its print magazine with a return to a monthly format from 3 March.
The 156-year-old title was originally launched as a monthly in 1854. It will now feature two new sections: “‘Projects’, which showcases new photographic series of work; and ‘Intelligence’, devoted to opinion about new trends and issues.”
The revamp will be backed by an aggressive subscription drive and a push to increase copies on international news stands, says the title.
“We believe that print magazines have a positive future, so when we began thinking about what we could deliver as a monthly, we decided to play to the strengths of print. While many magazines are cutting costs and chasing readers that now have an allegedly shorter attention span, we are investing, rewarding them with a redesigned magazine that uses higher quality paper, has superior reproduction techniques and delivers more depth,” says editor Simon Bainbridge in a release.
