SUSAN MEISELA'S PHOTO BOOK COLLECTION

Susan Meiselas’s practice of documentary photography started in the 1970s. Since then her work has never ceased to questions the exchanges that occur with the individuals that she portrays. Each of her projects – many of which are long-term – challenges the photographic act and the role that the image has in our society. 

She became known through her work in conflict zones of Central America in the 1970s and 1980s, due to the strength of her colour photographs and their distribution by Magnum Photos, an agency she joined in 1976. 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 often archive material, as she relentlessly explores and develops narratives integrating the participation of her subjects in her works.

Cover_Nicaragua_web


Nicaragua

Recognized at the time of its initial publication more than twenty-five years ago as marking a new chapter in the history of photojournalism, Susan Meiselas’s Nicaragua has since acquired a cultural cult status. There are many reasons this work endures: it is a cautionary tale about the brutalities of modern civil war, it implicates us in the repressive political strife of Latin America, it shows how effective colour can be in adding emotional content to reportage, and it reveals how remarkable an artist Meiselas really is. – Andy Grundberg, 2008
