2020 marks the 45th anniversary of Martha Rosler's The Bowery in two inadequate descriptive systems. Her critique of documentary photography's failure to motivate social change could easily be made again, judging by the recent spate of celebrated photographic projects claiming to raise awareness about the ongoing wreckage of the opioid crisis. We Want Our Pictures Back will provide an opportunity for members of SPE who are in recovery to talk about the intersections of our photographic practice and our recovery journeys. We will address our social activism and the complicated issue of consent when working with persons with substance use disorders.
