Based in Hampstead, the photographer Joanna Spence initially specialised in weddings and modelling portfolios before documenting issues related to women and social equality. In 1972 she joined the Childrens' Rights Workshop and produced a series called Children Photographed. She then collaborated with Terry Dennett on the publications Photography/Politics: One and Two which were linked to their involvement with the journal Camerawork. In 1974 she joined the Hackney Flashers with whom she created two photo-projects: Women and Work and Who's Holding the Baby?. Her documentation of her treatment for breast cancer led to her important work A Picture of Health?. Spence's books include Putting myself in the Picture (1986).
