"Susan Meiselas has spent five fearless decades at the frontline of history, photographing revolutionaries, teenagers and risque carnival dancers.“ (The Guardian) "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 current retrospective Mediations at Jeu de Paume in Paris brings together a selection of works from the 1970s to the present day.
