Issue 89 of Source Photography Review looks at the role photography plays in resistance and counterculture. The political upheaval of the last year has been played out and articulated in images, whether it's photographs of the Brexit bus (and its dubious slogans) or the size of the crowd at the Trump inauguration (and its questionable surface area). But this has not just been a matter of a small number of iconic pictures, increasingly, political debate has been mediated through the Internet and one of its chief currencies is images. In the partisan political climate we inhabit a picture and phrase combined (to make a meme) is the ideal way to pithily sum up an argument or skewer an opposing point of view.

Features include: An investigation of 'Bernie Bros', memes, and the online culture of the Left by Angela Nagle.

Nan Goldin on her seminal photobook 'The Ballad of Sexual Dependency' and how no one any longer believes a photograph is real.

Patrick Reinsborough looks back over the changing use of images in political campaigning and to outline what protest will look like in the coming years

Mads Holm's About Common Ground considers urban environments as fragile spaces where social order is on the verge of sudden change

David Blackmore, who's early work was a reaction to the introduction to the Euro currency in Ireland and his most recent project returns the theme of European identity

Ricky Adam's photographs of The Warzone Centre in Belfast - a space created by musicians and activist groups which grew out of Punk's DIY ethos.
