The final issue of Workshop, a photography magazine published by the avant-garde photography school of the same name. The limited-enrollment school featured instructors Nobuyoshi Araki, Shomei Tomatsu, Masahisa Fukase, Eikoh Hosoe, Daido Moriyama and Noriaki Yokosuka, each of whom also contributed to the magazine's essays and criticism. While the school closed its doors in March 1976, production of the magazine continued until the eighth issue in July 1976.
