Between 1973 and 1974 Kennard worked as the full-time photomontage artist for the Workers Press, the daily paper of the Socialist Labour League. He says: ‘The point of my work is to use easily recognisable iconic images, but to render them unacceptable… to show new possibilities emerging in the cracks and splintered fragments of the old reality.’ Apartheid South Africa was used to accompany an article in Workers Press on ‘The Iron Heel, British Investment in South Africa’.
