Ones To Watch
British Journal of Photography kicks off the summer with its latest Ones to Watch issue. It will be the 11th edition of the annual Talent issue, which celebrates the brightest emerging talent from all over the world. This year, 15 names were selected from over 500 nominations, made by some 100 industry experts from our prestigious photography network. We also welcome Simon Bainbridge, editor-in-chief of Magnum Photos and the former editorial director of BJP, to guest edit the final cohort.
Elsewhere, we visit Noémie Goudal’s studio in Paris, ahead of her major show at Rencontres d’Arles this July. Paris, the historic centre of photography, is also where we find our On Location exploration feature with local journalist, Remi Quimet. Our Intelligence essay considers the messy and unglamorous reality of the journey to success. Gem Fletcher speaks to Alec Soth, Poulomi Basu, Jess T Dugan and Justine Kurland about their experience. We also catch up with our former Ones to Watch nominees about their journeys since their nomination. As ever, our Agenda previews a selection of stellar upcoming exhibitions, and you’ll find our pick of favourite photobooks launching this summer.
