Popular Photography, formerly known as Popular Photography & Imaging, also called Pop Photo, was a monthly American consumer magazine that at one time had the largest circulation of any imaging magazine, with an editorial staff twice the size of its nearest competitor.[citation needed]


The first issue of Popular Photography was published in 1937. It was based in New York City[2] and owned by a number of companies during its lifetime, including Ziff Davis.[2] It was sold by Hachette Filipacchi Media U.S. to Bonnier Corporation in 2009. The magazine's publisher was Steven B. Grune and its editor-in-chief was Miriam Leuchter.[3]

In early March 2017, the magazine folded, owing to declining advertising revenues from the consumer-camera industry. The March/April 2017 issue was its last.[4]
