Aims & Scope
Philosophy of Photography is a new peer reviewed journal devoted to the scholarly understanding of photography. It is not committed to any one notion of photography nor, indeed, to any particular philosophical approach. The purpose of the journal is to provide a forum for debate of theoretical issues arising from the historical, political, cultural, scientific and critical matrix of ideas, practices and techniques that may be said to constitute photography as a multifaceted form. In a contemporary context remarkable for its diversity and rate of change, the conjunction of the terms ‘philosophy’ and ‘photography’ in the journal’s title is intended to act as a provocation to serious reflection on the ways in which existing and emergent photographic discourses might engage with and inform each other.
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, reviews, conference reports, occasional symposia on key topics and critical analyses of technical developments. The editors will also consider proposals for contributions in the form of photographic works. Prospective guest editors with ideas for themed issues are invited to approach the editors with their proposal. Prospective book, exhibition and conference reviewers should approach the appropriate reviews editor directly.
