After 22 years of continuous publication, we have decided that Issue 52 will be our final issue of Portfolio Magazine.

Between 1988 and 2010, Portfolio Magazine collaborated with photographers and writers to present the most important developments in contemporary photography in Britain. In the early years Portfolio also staged workshops and courses in practical photography from our studio premises in Edinburgh, and from 1988 to 2001 Portfolio Gallery presented up to twelve exhibitions a year, with sales of photographic prints. Between 2003 and 2008 Portfolio organised the annual Jerwood Photography Awards, selecting five Award winners each year, whose work was then published in Portfolio Magazine and presented through UK touring exhibitions. We have decided that, following publication of Issue 52 in November 2010, the time is right to end this extensive project.

I am very proud to present in our final issue ten artists whose work embraces both the specialist craft of photography and also technical innovation - details are contained under the web page on the current issue. These new series are accompanied by essays from some of the most significant writers on photographic art, including Francis Hodgson’s insight into collecting photography. It has been a pleasure to have worked with all of these writers on this particular occasion.
