Jo Spence. [Wikipedia]

Jo Spence (15 June 1934, London – 24 June 1992, London) was a British photographer, a writer, cultural worker, and a photo therapist. She began her career in the field of commercial photography but soon started her own agency which specialised in family portraits, and wedding photos.[1] In the 1970s, she refocused her work towards documentary photography.[2] Many of her works were self-portraits about her own fight with breast cancer.[1] During her prolific photography practice, she became known for her politicised approach to her art form, with socialist and feminist themes throughout her career.[1]
