American photographer Susan Meiselas (b. 1948) seeks to bear witness to stories that might otherwise go unnoticed. She has traveled from rural county fairs to conflict-ridden Central America, working closely and over long periods with her subjects, focusing her lens on what she thinks the public needs to see. A member of Magnum Photos since 1976, Meiselas creates photographs that raise provocative questions about the documentary practice and the relationship between photographer and subject.
<i>Susan Meiselas: Through a Woman’s Lens</i> presents never-before-shown photographs alongside iconic series that reflect the artist’s ongoing commitment to sharing the stories of women.
