Since 1996, the peer-reviewed journal Études photographiques, published by the Société française de photographie, has been the French-language publication of record addressing the history of photography and visual culture. In May 2009, Études photographiques began publishing bilingual print editions, extending its content to a broader public – a reflection of its growing success. With contributions by noted scholars from France and abroad, subject to the rules of scholarly publication, Études photographiques provides academics and the arts community access to the most current research on visual objects.


Two issues are published per year, in May and November. Each 220-page issue is printed in colour and includes six articles and approximately 80 previously unpublished images. Book reviews are available on our website:  


Études photographiques is published with the support of the Centre National du Livre, the CNRS and Ryerson University, Toronto.

Dear Garance Chabert - I am extremely impressed by the quality of your website, in particular, the way that the designer has integrated the footnotes. From personal experience I know how difficult this is to make work. Even html 5 or CSS appears not to have tackled this problem. Oh, also I have a very high opinion of your contributors, over the time that it has been in existence. The younger generation of scholars are, I am glad to say, more international in outlook. I have a text that I would like to submit towards the end of this year on aspects of collaboration between French and British savants - Michael Gray - []
