PUBLISHED: Susan Meiselas’ “A Room of Their Own” featured in The Guardian.
May 25, 2017
Susan Meiselas, photographer and member of CSSD’s Women Mobilizing Memory and Reframing Gendered Violence working groups, was recently featured in an article in The Guardian about A Room of Their Own, her new book of photos documenting residents of women’s refuges in Black Country, England.
Meiselas says that she hopes her haunting, quiet pictures have a cumulative emotional power and she says they make a political point, which is that the work of a refuge is never done: “The deep, sad reality is that the need isn’t ever going away.”
