The open-ended collaborative project, Photography Workshop (run by Jo Spence and Terry Dennett), ends the decade and the book with the emergence of photography as a newly critical art form. The frictions between Marxism and feminism, social and psychic issues, labor and sexuality coalesce to reshape our understanding of an embryonic postmodernism.
