“For me, the essence of documentary photography has always been to do with evidence.” —Susan Meiselas

A member of Magnum Photos since 1976, 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 color 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 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 traveling retrospective of the photographer’s work, it features an illustrious list of contributors that includes Ariella Azoulay, Eduardo Cadava and Kristin Lubben, among others.

Susan Meiselas (born 1948) studied at Sarah Lawrence College and Harvard University, taking up photography in the early 1970s. She is credited with being one of the first to work with color in documentary photography, a controversial decision when she was shooting the conflict in Nicaragua in the late 1970s. Meiselas joined Magnum Photos in 1976 and has worked as a freelance photographer since then.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Juxtapoz

Using photography, film, video, and archive material, Meiselas presents a comprehensive narrative of the subjects in her work, constantly raising questions about the role of the photographer as a witness and the subject as a participant.

New York Magazine

Morgan Sykes

if you can’t make it to see her genre-defining photographs in person, pick up the book and look behind the scenes of one of America’s photographic living legends.”

Dazed

Clara Hernanz

Meiselas remains an inspiration for any self-conscious photographer. At the centre of her work is a perpetual discussion around the purpose and relevance of photography, the use and distribution of images and their effects on history and memory.

Huck

Sara Rosen

a meditation on the threads that weave the complex tapestry of Meiselas’ career.

Mother Jones

Mark Murrmann

Exceptional, giving a taste of the breadth of her work.

Hyperallergic

Emily Wilson

Mediations shows the range of Meiselas’s subjects, from carnival strippers, girls in her Little Italy neighborhood in New York (the “Prince Street Girls”), a refuge for women in England, and the aftermath of the Kurdistan genocide in 1991.

A different kind of photographer and woman: Susan Meiselas

A different kind of photographer and woman: Susan Meiselas

"Pebbles at Manhattan Beach" (from the series Prince Street Girls, 1975-1990) is reproduced from Susan Meiselas: Mediations, published by Damiani to accompany exhibitions at the Jeu de Paume in Paris and SFMOMA. Meiselas photographed her young Soho neighbors "until the girls turned into women, got married and moved away to Staten Island or New Jersey," Kristen Lubben writes. "In those pictures… Meiselas had the time to sit and observe the intimate gestural language between women, and mine it for meaning. She was observing girls becoming women and women striving for self-determination, while also in her own process of transforming into a different kind of photographer and woman." continue to blog

'Susan Meiselas: Mediations' is essential reading for Women's History Month

Susan Meiselas: Mediations is published to accompany the major traveling retrospective currently on view at the Jeu de Paume in Paris, en route to SFMOMA. Pictured here are a variety of archival materials from Meiselas' seminal 1972-75 Carnival Strippers project, which essayist Kristen Lubben credits with posing questions like, "How do women forge autonomy and self-determination? Where are women pushing at the margins of acceptability? This line of inquiry can be traced throughout the long and varied trajectory of Meiselas' work, as well as through her own narrative as a female photographer transgressing in male-dominated spaces." continue to blog
