The Royal Photographic Society has released the online version of all its Journals. Since the first issue was published in 1853, it’s a whole lot of priceless material now available for you to browse through. And the best thing is – it’s completely free.
The RPS Journal has been published since 1853, which makes it the oldest continuously published photographic periodical in the world. Can you imagine all the history it has been preserved among these pages? The Journal covered the artistic and technical side of photography and saved the developments within both of them. There are many iconic photographers on these pages, many famous events, and the Jornal also reported on Society activities.
The digital archive consists of some 30,000 pages and it was originally created to commemorate The Society’s 160th anniversary. There’s also a search bar so you can browse through content if you’re interested in anything specific. For now, the archive covers the issues up to 2018, and future years will be added as they are completed.
