    Abstract

    In a time of crisis and increasing anti-capitalism, I consider the meeting of the political Left with photography in Britain in the 1970s. In the process, I insist the fortunes of documentary and the visibility of social class are entwined. Beginning from a discussion of the critical fortunes of documentary over the last 30 years, I look at the interest in Brecht and the fall out from the so called neo-Brechtian moment. In the process, he re-evaluates theories and practices of documentary, engaging with a range of documentary work; conceptions of skill and collective production and women and labour. The final post Women & Work has been republished by Monthly Review on-line: https://mronline.org/2017/11/01/women-and-work/
