Photographica is a new magazine which aims to support research dynamics around the history of photography for university and museum level. ”
This project supported by the French Photography Society (SFP) and the Ministry of Culture contributed to its creation.
Here is an excerpt from the Editorial of the first issue by Éléonore Challine and Paul-Louis Roubert.
(…) Each issue will be designed around a thematic dossier and will highlight a source through the critical presentation of an iconographic collection or a text.
Published twice a year, Photographica will also offer its readers the opportunity to follow scientific news in our field, through reviews of books, catalogs, journals, conferences or study days.
Thanks to the Éditions de la Sorbonne and the InVisu5 laboratory, Photographica will be present in a dual form: in paper version, for the revised object, its ergonomics and its transportable nature, with the pleasure of turning pages; and in a digital version, free and available at the same time as the paper journal, to allow both open consultation of the content and access to documents uploaded in their entirety. And then, since its inception in 1854 the Société française de photographie, which carries this review, has been conceived in this way, this digital version also proposes to constitute an archive, searchable and “augmented”, of the ever-changing history.
