Susan Meiselas, one of the most influential photographers of our time and an important contributor to the evolution of documentary storytelling, provides an insightful personal commentary on the trajectory of her career in Susan Meiselas: On the Frontline. She guides us through her ideas, practices, and decision-making along her journey—from Carnival Strippers (1976) and Nicaragua: June 1978–July 1979 (1981; reissued by Aperture 2008, 2016) to Kurdistan: In the Shadow of History (1997) and Cova da Moura, Portugal (2004). This book includes over one hundred photographs from her earliest work and most iconic images, along with previously unpublished photographs.



Susan Meiselas (born in Baltimore, 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.
