A Year Late: Susan Meiselas

Somehow, I missed this story on Susan Meiselas from The New York Times when it appeared on August 11th ... 2007.

Added later that day: Oooopps. Well isn't this embarrassing! So, just take the time to re-read the article! It gives me the chance to plug new or imminent re-issue and initial release of three books by Meiselas's ...

Kurdistan: In the Shadow of History (1997) already is out from University of Chicago Press; Nicaragua: June 1978-July 1979 (1981) is due out from Aperture next month; and In History is due out in October from Steidl. As the essay in The Times makes clear, not only is Meiseals an extraordinary photographer, she is incredibly reflective and creative regarding the uses and dissemination and re-circulation of her images.

Her decision to shoot documentary in color (along with Paul Graham & several others) also contributed to the sea change away from B&W (in fine art, as well as documentary) in the mid to late seventies.
