Book Signing Susan Meiselas at photo-eye Bookstore + Project Space

Friday, Aug 3rd, 2018 4-5:30 pm
photo-eye Bookstore is proud to welcome Susan Meiselas for a book signing on Friday, August 3rd from 4-5:30 pm. Meiselas will be signing copies of her two latest monographs, Mediations, published by Damiani and On the Frontline published by Aperture.

Mediations presents a selection of works from the 1970s to today, revealing Susan Meiselas's special approach to the underlying reasons for making photographs, how the image concerns its subject as much as the photographer and the role that these images can have at different levels in society and particularly in photojournalism.

On the Frontline:
In On the Frontline, one of the most influential photographers of our time, Susan Meiselas, provides an insightful personal commentary on the trajectory of her career, on her ideas and processes, and her decisions as a photographer. Applying a sociological training to the practice of witness journalism, she compares her process to that of an archaeologist, piecing together shards of evidence to build a three-dimensional cultural understanding of her subjects.

Susan Meiselas (born 1948) has received numerous awards, including the Robert Capa Gold Medal (1979); Leica Award for Excellence (1982); Engelhard Award, Institute of Contemporary Art (1985); Hasselblad Foundation Photography Prize (1994); Cornell Capa Infinity Award (2005); and Harvard Arts Medal (2011). In 1992, she was named a MacArthur Fellow. Meiselas joined Magnum Photos in 1976 and is president of the Magnum Foundation.
