Many of her works were self-portraits about her own fight with breast cancer. After beginning work as a studio photographer she began documentary work in the early 1970s, motivated by her political concerns. Both a socialist and feminist, she worked to represent these issues through her practice of photography. She was involved in setting up ''Photography Workshop'' (1974) and ''Camerawork magazine'' (1976) and was a founder member of the ''Hackney Flashers'' (1974), a collective of broadly feminist and socialist women who produced exhibitions such as "Women and Work" and "Who's Holding the Baby".
