Portfolio N°24: Tish Murtha

Portfolio composed of 10 images of Tish Murtha in Wombat N°24.

In Youth Unemployment (1981), Tish, nicknamed “the demon snapper,” shows the youth suffering, like herself, from the hopelessness of unemployment, left to themselves in an area that is equally abandoned. This series, along with Juvenile Jazz Bands (1979), is controversial enough to become the subject of debate in The House of Commons.  

To receive this portfolio, order Wombat N°24.
