Tar Beach, 2020 (Signed, Ships to U.S. 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.

View Of A Room, 2018 (Signed, Ships to U.S. Only)

In 2016, Susan Meiselas was invited by Multistory to visit the Black Country in the West Midlands, UK. The resulting book A Room of Their Own is a multilayered, visual story comprised of Meiselas’ photographs, first hand testimonies and original art works from women in refuge. A few months before the launch of the book in May 2017, The Photographers’ Gallery asked Meiselas to exhibit a print for their Touchstone programme, where visitors are invited to respond to a photograph through writing and drawing. The response card asks a simple question: ‘What do you see?’ This publication, ‘A View of a Room’, reproduces a selection of the responses that were submitted alongside a signed 6 x 4 inch aof the photograph Meiselas chose to contribute.

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)

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.
