Sunday Times Mag exhibition extended at Saatchi
An exhibition celebrating 50 years of The Sunday Times Magazine at the Saatchi Gallery in London has proved so popular that it is being extended until March 18.
It features work by many of the great photographers published in the magazine since its launch in February 1962. They include Don McCullin, David Bailey, Eve Arnold, Snowdon, Richard Avedon, Eugene Richards and Sam Taylor-Wood.
The exhibition also highlights contributors such as Ian Fleming, VS Naipaul, Bruce Chatwin, Jilly Cooper, Nicholas Tomalin, James Fox and Zoe Heller.
When the first issue of The Sunday Times Magazine was published, the then owner of the paper, Roy Thomson, remarked: "My God, this is going to be a disaster."
But the readers liked it, and the magazine is said to have added 250,000 sales to the Sunday Times.
