Letter of the week – 1 November 2014


Success without smut

Many thanks for a splendid 130th anniversary edition of AP; I enjoyed almost every page. However, the double page spread on pages 54 and 55 of cover pages over the years reveals the reason why I stopped buying your magazine from the early ’70s until roughly the turn of the century. AP seemed to have descended into its ‘Page 3’ period, when an edition couldn’t succeed without the inclusion of semi-naked females. The classified ads also started to resemble the cards left in London phone boxes! We are fortunate to be able take part in a craft that encompasses every nuance of the visual image, and I love the way our discipline has matured to embrace the very finest photographs from all levels of ability. It was a wise editor that decided that the magazine didn’t need smut to sell.
