The PhotoHistorian (ISSN: 0956-1455)
The Royal Photographic Society's Historical Group began publishing a newsletter from its formation in 1972. This was renamed The PhotoHistorian in Spring 1989 under a new editor, Colin Osman. PH has continued to appear quarterly ever since and is now edited by Dr Carolyn Bloore.
PH publishes the proceedings of the meetings of the group, research articles by members and outside contributors, plus relevant news and reviews from the history of photography. Articles range from photographic aesthetics through to photographic technology and processes.
It is received free by members of the Group as well as being subscribed to by leading museums, galleries and academic institutions internationally. A subscription to The PhotoHistorian, either the printed or CD version is available to non-members for an annual fee of £50.00. Orders should be sent to Mr. G.
