Susan Meiselas on i-D Magazine
i-D magazine has spoken to the 2019 Deutsche Borse Foundation prize nominees, which includes Magnum member Susan Meiselas. Meiselas, who was nominated for her retrospective exhibition Mediations, tells the publication: “The notion of ‘mediation’ is about acknowledging the intervention, making the process more visible and raising questions about the practice of making photographs, and how those photographs relate to the people in them, over time.” Read the rest of the feature here.
