In this lecture I traced and contextualised the historical emergence of family photography, and the formation of this practice's informing conventions. I explored the socio-political subversive potential as well as the implications of this vernacular photographic genre through recourse to the work of fine art practitioners and photographers such as Urs Luthi, Jo Spence, Richard Billingham, Sally Mann, Thomas Struth, Sharon Lockhart and others.
