Abstract

[About the book]

Camerawork Magazine, which ran from 1976 until 1985, was the only magazine in the United Kingdom devoted to a critical and contextual study of photography. It established itself as a source for challenging hallowed ideas about photography and photography education; many of its contributors and editors are now regarded as pioneering photography practitioners, artists, theorists and teachers.

This anthology of fifteen significant essays from Camerawork covers a wide range of photographic genres: documentary, fashion, amateur, self-identity, representations of class, and stresses the concept of visual culture, its context, and its wider importance.
