September 19, 2008–January 4, 2009
International Center of Photography
An American photographer best known for her work covering the political upheavals in Central America in the 1970s and ’80s, Susan 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.
