This book accompanies the 2018 exhibition and features 200 photographs, including the 100 winners, alongside personal quotes about each image. With an introduction by Will Self. The British Journal of Photography takes an international perspective on contemporary photography. Founded in 1854 , it is the world’s longest-running photography magazine.
