Philosophy of Photography (Journal)

ISSN 20403682 , ONLINE ISSN 20403690

This international peer-reviewed journal aims to provide a forum for theoretical and critical debates arising from the historical, political, cultural, scientific and critical matrix of ideas, practices and techniques that constitute photography as a multifaceted and changing form. In a contemporary context, characterized by its diversity and rapid rate of transformation, the conjunction of ‘philosophy' and ‘photography' in the journal's title is intended to provoke reflection on the ways in which existing and emergent discourses might engage with each other to inform our understanding of the photographic.

Aims and Scope

Philosophy of Photography is an international peer-reviewed journal published six monthly in the spring and autumn. The journal's aim is to provide a forum for theoretical and critical debate of issues arising from the historical, political, cultural, scientific and critical matrix of ideas, practices and techniques that constitute photography as a multifaceted and changing form.

In a contemporary context characterised by its diversity and rapid rate of transformation, the conjunction of ‘philosophy' and ‘photography' in the journal's title is intended to provoke reflection on the ways in which existing and emergent discourses might engage with each other to inform our understanding of the photographic.

Call for Papers

The editors welcome inquiries and submissions from researchers and practitioners, from a broad range of disciplines, who seek to explore any aspect of photography from a theoretical standpoint. The journal publishes articles, interviews, photo-works, new English translations of significant work on photography in other languages, occasional symposia or special sections on key topics, reviews, conference reports and critical analyses of technical developments. The editors will consider proposals for contributions in the form of photographic works. Prospective guest editors with ideas for special sections devoted to particular themes are invited to approach the editors with their proposal. Prospective book, exhibition and conference reviewers should also approach the editors.

Although we welcome submissions on any theme relating to photography and its theoretical discourses, currently, Philosophy of Photography is particularly interested in receiving submissions that address the following topics:

  • New trends in photography theory
  • Critical approaches to the social and political theorisation of the photographic
  • Critical (re-)examinations of the concepts and methods of photography theory
  • Uses of photography in the sciences
  • Theorisations of new media culture, mobile multi-media and photography in relation to Web 2.0 and the aesthetics of the internet


All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.

Journal contributors will receive a free PDF copy of their final work upon publication. Print copies of the journal may also be purchased by contributors at half price.
