The retrospective devoted to the American photographer Susan Meiselas (b. 1948, Baltimore) brings together a selection of works from the 1970s to the present day.

A member of Magnum Photos since 1976, Susan Meiselas questions documentary practice. She became known through her work in conflict zones of Central America in the 1970s and 1980s in particular due to the strength of her colour photographs. Covering many subjects and countries, from war to human rights issues and from cultural identity to the sex industry, Meiselas uses photography, film, video and sometimes archive material, as she relentlessly explores and develops narratives integrating the participation of her subjects in her works. The exhibition highlights Susan Meiselas’ unique personal as well as geopolitical approach, showing how she moves through time and conflict and how she constantly questions the photographic process and her role as witness.

Curators: Carles Guerra and Pia Viewing.

Exposition coproduced by the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelone and the Jeu de Paume, Paris.

Thanks to the Hôtel Castille de Paris.

Medias Partners: À Nous Paris, Arte, Courrier International, Le Monde and Slate.
