What has happened to workplace photography?

Philip Wolmuth, a freelance photographer, writes about the lack of representation of people at work in contemporary union journals, citing the example of the former NUPE Journal which frequently used photographs of members at work which ‘were very often unposed, documentary shots taken in workplaces – something that is now rare’. He cites as the main reason for the demise of ‘privatisation of so many services – from the railways and other public utilities, to hospital porters and school dinners – has made access difficult’ http://londonphotographers.org/2010/09/what-has-happened-to-workplace-photography/
