This landmark book offers a synthesis of celebrated Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas’s
views on her work and the role of the documentary photographer. Through text drawn largely
from exclusive interviews with editor Mark Holborn, she offers a remarkable commentary on her
career, from early work with carnival strippers, through groundbreaking reportage on Nicaragua
and El Salvador, to projects encompassing subjects as varied as the Dani tribe of Indonesia,
the Kurds of Northern Iraq and victims of domestic violence in California. Central to Meiselas’s
work are themes of collaboration, return and exchange.
