Back in the day

A wan­der through the AP ar­chive. This week we pay a visit to June 1981

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

OH, the sins of the fathers. Last week we had nudes on the floor ca­vort­ing with ap­ples, the week be­fore we were treated to a bikini- clad model on a sheep­skin rug and this week we have a not-at-all- of­fen­sive im­age of a fenced-in woman, miss­ing a bra. The cov­er­line clanger man­ages to make things even worse: ‘Pic­tures de­signed to snare!’ She also ap­pears to be on the set of Dr Who or Blake’s 7 judg­ing by the hokey sci-fi back­ground. Thank­fully things get sen­si­ble in­side, with an in- depth look at sec­ond- gen­er­a­tion Mi­nolta AF com­pacts, and an evoca­tive photo project on ru­ral life in the Lake Dis­trict. Th­ese craggy rus­tics are prob­a­bly long gone, and their cot­tages used as hol­i­day homes by BBC pro­duc­ers from Manch­ester, but there you go. There’s also a piece about choos­ing be­tween colour and mono, though it isn’t an ei­ther/or thing – more about which is most suit­able for the sub­ject, right?
