The BAL invites photographer Susan Meiselas, member of Magnum Photos, for a book signing session of her latest publishing A room of their own. The event will take place at 6:30 pm as part of the Magnum Analog Recovery exhibition displayed at the BAL.
In her latest book, the photographer has sought to highlight the female condition and traumas of victims of domestic violence in the former industrial region of Black County, Great Britain.
The Magnum Analog Recovery exhibition features her Nicaragua series, in which Susan Meiselas wanted to highlight the reactions of the Nicaraguan people after the bruises of her civil war. She also summarizes her personal impressions, after having followed the struggles of the country and taking an empathy with this people. In the film Voyages by Marc Karlin, she explains: ” When the Nicaraguans, after a long secession, reunited with shared hopes and a past which they hoped might be the basis of their future, it was the end of A period of struggle, which had left 50,000 victims, completely devastated cities and left an economy in ruins, but it was not a time for celebrations or celebrations. I had spent so much time traveling, getting closer, being there, by their side, that I was beginning to realize that in the course of this experiment, Were slowly breaking with my own country, realizing that I had found a new one, but on that day, July 19, I realized that it was their victory, not mine. They had a revolution.”
