"In the work of Susan Meiselas, each image opens a reflection on several creative, sensitive and existential universes. Sensing from the start of her career as a photographer the unusual chameleon-like capacity of photography to mutate its meaning according to the social, political and temporal context from which we speak and look, Susan Meiselas has integrated this ambiguity into her artistic and photographic research.
In a recent interview with Florian Ebner and Julie Jones, curators of the photography department of the centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Susan Meiselas perfectly summed up the vision that, with different strategies, underlies her reflexive approach to photography: “I started thinking not only of the ’frame’ of a photograph but about the ’frameworks’ I could create to allow photographs to be reconsidered”.
In this way, Meiselas deliberately avoids the isolated operation of a photographic project or an image, in order to construct choral and complex ways of thinking about and bearing witness to life, with its harmonies and discrepancies, interpreted in different voices and in different spaces of time."
