Summary

Founded in 1968, Creative Camera has always been more than a magazine: it has been a forum for the influencing shape and direction of modern photography. This anthology of fifty texts and their images includes moments from the debate. There are strong and distinctive voices, many in lively disagreement, of writers and artists such as Roland Barthes, John Berger, Victor Burgin, Jo Spence, and Helen Chadwick.
