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.[]


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 last publisher was Steven B. Grune and its last editor-in-chief was Miriam Leuchter.[3]

One of its most well-known editors was American photographer and writer Norman Rothschild, who Edward Steichen once called "the man who makes rainbows."[4]

In early March 2017, the magazine folded, owing to declining advertising revenues from the consumer-camera industry.[5] The March/April 2017 issue was its last. In May 2017, Bonnier was offering to fulfill PopPhoto subscriptions by sending other magazines.[6]
