Susan Meiselas: Nicaragua
Susan Meiselas's Nicaragua photographs go on show at Centro de Arte Rafael Botí in Spain
Considered by some to be, Susan Meiselas’s signature work, these startling colour photographs of the lead-up to the overthrow of the Somoza regime and subsequent Sandinista victory were widely distributed in the international press and published in the 1981 book Nicaragua. A landmark in war photography for its pioneering and controversial use of colour, Meiselas’s work in Nicaragua remains a paragon of engaged, subjective documentary coverage.
The initial set of photographs taken in 1978–79 have become a touchstone to which Meiselas has repeatedly returned to explore issues at the core of her practice: her ongoing relationship to her subjects, the use and circulation of her images in the media, and the relationship of images to history and memory.
