Susan Meiselas: In History

By Susan Meiselas, Kristen Lubben (Author), Caroline Brothers (Contributor), Allan Sekula (Contributor) and David Levi Strauss (Contributor)

Since the 1970s, questions of ethics raised by documentary practice have been central to debates in photography. Perhaps no other photographer has so closely and consistently represented and participated in these debates than Susan Meiselas. An American photographer best known for her work covering the political upheavals in Central America in the 1970s and '80s, Meiselas's process has evolved in radical and challenging ways as she has grappled with pivotal questions about her relationship to her subjects, the use and circulation of her images in the media, and the relationship of images to history and memory. Her insistent engagement with these concerns has positioned her as a leading voice in the debate on contemporary documentary practice. This catalogue accompanies the exhibition held at ICP from September 19, 2008 to January 4, 2009.
