'Exceptional, giving a taste of the breadth of her work' - Mother Jones

An exhaustive monograph of Susan Meiselas featuring her works from the 1970s through to the current day

Susan Meiselas became known for her work in the conflict zones of Central America in the 1970s and '80s and for the strength of her colour photography. Covering many subjects and countries, from war to human-rights issues and from cultural identity to the sex industry, Meiselas uses photography, film, video and sometimes archive material, as she relentlessly explores and develops narratives integrating the participation of her subjects in her works. Meiselas constantly questions the photographic process and her role as a witness.

Presenting a selection of works from the 1970s through the present day, Susan Meiselas: Mediations retraces her trajectory from the 1970s to the present. Published to accompany a major travelling retrospective of the photographer’s work, it features an illustrious list of contributors that includes Ariella Azoulay, Eduardo Cadava and Kristin Lubben, among others.
