On 13 August 1977, the far-right National Front attempted to march from New Cross to Lewisham, leading to a violent confrontation with counter demonstrators and the police. 

Remembered today as the Battle of Lewisham, it was the first time that the National Front were prevented from marching, and the first time that riot shields were deployed by UK police.

Camerawork founder-member Paul Trevor was one of the many photographers present that day. The events, and how they were documented, became the focus of the first special issue of the magazine.  We spoke to Paul about how it came to be.

Our second Behind the Lens interview is with Derek Smith. Derek’s photographs of Teesside were exhibited at the Half Moon Gallery in 1976. His images showed the resilience of a community in the face of a rapidly de-industrialising Britain.
