was widely voiced that good portraits could only be done in black-and-
white, while colour was at best useful to the dermatologist for diagnostic
purposes. This myth has been exploded primarily by a constant flow of
good colour portraits in advertisements, on magazine covers and record
sleeves. Advertising photographers proved that a colour portrait is not
necessarily unnatural and that it clearly does not present any insuperable
technical difficulties. A similar development has in my opinion taken
place in illustrated magazines. Colour advertisements made it clear to
readers that colour pages could be attractive in the editorial section too,
and that they were technically quite feasible. Before long, editors were
asking their photographers to work both in black-and-white and in
colour, or even in colour alone. Statements to the effect that 'colour is
iconographic and black-and-white is documentary', which were long in
circulation and even today are defended tenaciously in numerous rear
guard actions, are simply not true any more. It is advertising photo
graphy which has here done most to change the attitude and the response
of the reader. Fashion magazines were among the very first to register
this change of heart; their editorial pages grew more colourful along
with the advertising section. Vogue, House and Garden, Glamour
and Harper's Bazaar were already doing outstanding things with colour
photography as much as twenty-five years ago.
Another domain in which advertising photography has taken the
lead is that of experimentation. New colour effects enabled the attention
value of an advertisement to be stepped up and at the same time imparted
new impulses to the development of colour photography.
A field which is not very important in terms of turnover, but which is
growing from year to year, is that of the advertising calendar. Here too
there has been a pronounced move from black-and-white to colour in
the last ten years. Wall calendars full of colour photographs leave no
doubt as to the greater eye-catching power of colour. The evidence was
too strong for calendar printers to overlook, and although the much
