In the 1980s, Jo Spence put cancer in the viewfinder to capture how politics influences our experience of illness. Today, Oreet Ashery uses video to expose how companies try to profit from our pain. But how can the camera help us when we’re sick?

It's good to be reminded now and again that we're all travelling at 67,000 miles an hour. Feel dizzy yet?
