Learn to See (Signed, U.S. SHIPPING ONLY)

Reissued in 2021, Learn to See: A Sourcebook of Photography Projects by Students and Teachers (Polaroid Foundation, 1974), a publication conceived when Susan Meiselas was a teacher in Bronx public schools in New York. With the participation of other educators, artists and researchers, she created a tool dedicated to experimentation and learning through images. In a series of 101 playful exercises, the book progressively explores the basics of photographic language and, through stagings reflecting the daily life of the time, highlights the gaze of children from underprivileged neighborhoods of New York, South Carolina or Mississippi.

Mediations (Signed, U.S. SHIPPING ONLY)

Among the pioneers of a critical revision of documentary photography, Susan Meiselas embarked on a dialectical engagement with specific moments of contemporary history through her rigorous and intense handling of the most pressing political and social issues of our time. Ethnic and religious conflicts related to borders and to gender, plus migration and rootlessness, are just some of the subjects running through her work, which tirelessly questions the role of the media and the status accorded pictures depending on the collective or subjective context in which those images are viewed. Grasping Meiselas’ approach means abandoning preconceptions that lock photography into a documentary framework, means distancing oneself from photojournalism that decontextualized reality.

Tar Beach, 2020 (Signed, U.S. SHIPPING ONLY)

In Tar Beach, photographer and Little Italy resident Susan Meiselas (born 1948) brings together found pictures that were made, kept and gathered by various families who handed them down from 1940 to the early 1970s. Meiselas, along with two of her neighbors, Angel Marinaccio and Virginia Bynum, collected and curated these vernacular photographs and memories to convey the feeling of this special place and time in the daily lives of Italian immigrants as they made their way to becoming part of American culture.

A Room Of Their Own, 2017 (Signed, U.S. SHIPPING ONLY)

A Room of Their Own, is a multilayered, visual story comprised of Susan’s photographs, first-hand testimonies, and original art works from women in refuge. Through a series of collaborative workshops, the women worked with Susan, plus an illustrator and a writer, during 2015 and 2016, to explore their experiences of domestic abuse and resettlement. The project was commissioned by the West Bromwich-based arts organization,, and the book was published in May 2017. The story told in A Room of Their Own is intended to share women’s experience of domestic abuse and the process of entering refuge alone, or with their children, to the collective life within, to then becoming resettled in their own home.

In History (Signed, U.S. SHIPPING ONLY)

Since the 1970s, questions of ethics raised by documentary practice have been central to debates in photography. Meiselas’ process has evolved in radical and challenging ways as she has grappled with essential questions about her relationship to her subjects, the use and circulation of her images in the media and the relationship of images to history and memory. Her tenacious engagement with these matters has made her a leading commentator in the debate on contemporary photojournalism. With 200 plates and contributions from some of photography’s finest theorists–among them David Levi Strauss, Lucy Lippard, Kristen Lubben, Jan-Erik Lundstrom and Allan Sekula–this volume gives an overview of Meiselas’ enormously varied and courageous work to date.
