1854 Presents is a new initiative by 1854 & British Journal of Photography to bring world-class photographers off the page, connecting directly with you, our community. Together with our industry’s leading figures, we present artist talks, how-tos, Q&As, and panel discussions that explore all the topics you want to hear about.

In our inaugural event, 1854 Presents: Jack Latham in conversation with Simon Bainbridge, Editorial Director of British Journal of Photography. Jack is the author of the photo books A Pink Flamingo (2015), Sugar Paper Theories (2016) and Parliament of Owls (2019). He was also the 2019 recipient of the BJP International Photography Award, through which he won a solo show at TJ Boulting gallery in London for his series, Parliament of Owls.

View the recording of our latest event, where Jack and Simon discussed how Jack meticulously researches and develops his stories, which often involve illuminating things that are hidden or obscured from the public.
