Absolutely. Given the text, editorial photographs are often little more than visual alliteration, when they could be underscoring or counterpointing the words. They used to be from the 40s till the 70s in the best magazines and newspaper supplements, where photographs acted as miniature pieces of art as well as documentary. Now their use is mostly banal.
