Paper Journal 01 in the front window at Magma, Covent Garden, London.


Launched in 2013, online and print magazine Paper Journal is updated regularly with interviews, features, studio visits and photobook reviews and aims to bring you the very best in contemporary visual arts. It is unique in that we feature a lot of different types of photography from unknown or new photographers alongside established names. Our contributors range from journalists, fashion editors, stylists, photographers and industry professionals.

In 2018, we went from online to offline, with our first print issue. Our issue was launched in London at Webber Gallery, as well as at New York Art Book Fair, and was nominated for a Lucie Award in the Photography Magazine of the Year category. Paper Journal 01 is stocked worldwide.

Based in Melbourne, London, and NYC and with contributors from all over the world, Paper Journal continues to grow with a series of independent exhibitions, printed publications, talks and events.
