(Received 13 February 2004 / Accepted 6 December 2004)

We carried out CCD photometry in the Johnson-Cousins B and R bands of 23 dwarf galaxies: SDIG, ESO 410-17, KK11, ESO 245-05, KKs3, KK27, KK38, KK40, IC 4662, KK244, KK246, KK247, KK248, KK249, KK253, KK255, KK256, KK257, KK258, KK259, UGCA 438, ESO 347-17, and UGCA 442. Both isolated galaxies and members of the Sculptor group and the NGC 1313 group were observed. The galaxy sample is characterized by a median distance of 9.3 Mpc, and median absolute magnitude of -14.8 mag. The central surface brightnesses are in the range from 22.2 to 24.4 mag arcsec-2 in B.
