a week in photography

There is no finer time of the year for getting out into the British landscape than the next few weeks, but where to go? This week we ask some of our most accomplished photographers to list the best places in the UK to capture the colours of autumn. We also talk to the legend that is Art Wolfe about his latest epic project, which was shot entirely between the hours of dusk and dawn. The social history of Britain over the past 50 years has been recorded by many photographers, and widely featured in AP over the years, but few have focused on the West Indian immigrant community, which makes Charlie Phillips’s recently rediscovered archive all the more important. Charlie tells us his story this week. We also take a…

this week in 1968

Smith and Carlos by Douglas Miller Tommie Smith (right) of the USA wins the men’s 200 metres final at the Olympic Games in Mexico City, 16 October 1968. Bronze medallist John Carlos, also of the USA, is on the left. Smith and Carlos later caused controversy when they gave the Black Power salute on the medal podium while the American national anthem was played. After the protest, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) ordered the pair to be suspended from the US team and banned from the Olympic village – but they were not forced to give up their medals.

it’s good to share

AP picture of the week Welsh Renaissance by Ashley Gillam Rolleiflex SL35, Rollei Planar 1.8 50mm lens, Kodak Ektar 100, ISO 100 ‘I started getting into film photography during the first lockdown in 2020. I was always using my Nikon D3400 but I love the manual aspect of using a film SLR,’ says Ashley. ‘I’ve found I don’t take as many images as I would on digital. This appealed to me because I didn’t enjoy sorting through and editing lots of images afterwards. The feeling of also waiting for your film to be developed and seeing the final image is also exciting.’ Ashley adds, ‘I took this photograph in Portmeirion whilst on a camping trip around Wales. The village was designed and built in an Italian style. I like this shot as it…
