Album was a monthly art photography magazine from Album Photographic Ltd. that published 12 issues between February 1970 and January 1971.[1]

Although it was a short-lived publication, Album is important in that it featured budding photographers who have since become notable, including several members of Magnum Photos. Featured photographers include Bill Brandt, W. Eugene Smith and Emmet Gowin.

Album was founded and edited by Bill Jay (previously editor of Creative Camera);[2] the publisher was Aidan Ellis[3] (also previously with Creative Camera, as artist and publisher);[4] and Tristram Powell, a television and film director, was in charge of finance.

Album remains unique[citation needed] in publishing a combination of contemporary and historical photographers, along with essays and some poetry and drawings.
