A year on from its tri­umphant de­but, the sec­ond edition of The Pho­tog­ra­phy Show is fi­nally here, and 2015’s in­stall­ment prom­ises to be big­ger and bet­ter than ever. Where else can you meet – and be inspired by – so many of the world’s lead­ing pho­tog­ra­phers in the space of a sin­gle week­end? From Martin Parr to Mary Ellen Mark, the line-up of speak­ers on this year’s Su­per Stage reads like a Who’s Who of 20th-cen­tury pho­tog­ra­phy.

And if you can’t make it to the show, or just can’t wait, then al­low us to bring some of the stars of the show to you: Ge­off Har­ris’s poignant in­ter­view with

leg­endary pho­to­jour­nal­ist Don McCullin, whose Nikon F fa­mously stopped a bul­let in Cam­bo­dia, is a truly com­pelling read, while Lynsey Ad­dario’s har­row­ing but ul­ti­mately mov­ing ac­count of the story behind her best shot will leave you hum­bled and inspired in equal mea­sure.

On a lighter – but no less in­spir­ing – note, this is­sue’s Light­box boasts the world’s very

best flower and gar­den im­ages, while our fan­tas­tic fea­ture on fo­cus­ing shows you how to nail pin-sharp shots ev­ery time.

Plus we have our usual mix of creative projects in this is­sue’s Skills Zone, from adding some sparkle to fam­ily por­traits to cre­at­ing a comic book hero. En­joy!
