Jo Spence’s photographs of her body and her disease are not simply a private record of a cancer sufferer. They explicitly tell us that having breast cancer is a social experience.
The photos urge us to see highly social issues: how this society deals with a woman’s body, cultural Implications of the disease, and medical professionalism and authoritarianism.
Spence’s insightful social criticism and search for survival as a dignified person provide us with power.
