Summer 2023 edition of Studies in Photography, the journal of The Scottish Society for the History of Photography (SSHoP). This high-quality magazine-style journal of Studies in Photography is packed with fascinating articles, both contemporary and historical. It includes an examination of James Craig Annan’s portrait of Joseph Conrad, a consideration of Colin Gray’s remarkable long-term series about his parents; the singer/songwriter Kathryn Joseph’s ‘tender gaze’ as celebrated by David Williams; and Alex Boyd’s Scottish Military Pastoral. This along with regular reviews and our usual ‘Writer’s Choice’, for which we are delighted to feature the eminent writer, Michel Faber.
“It's just page after page of extraordinary stuff, beautifully laid out, and mercifully free of the faddish design tomfoolery that renders many other modern magazines a bit irritating to peruse.” - Michel Faber
