I first came to know of Susan Meiselas' amazing photographs when she was photographing in conflict zones in the 70's and 80's. To a one, these images were extraordinary in making the viewer proximate to the violence of war and our shared humanity. Overtime, I acquainted myself with most of her work, well at least the images in monographs, museums, and galleries finding inspiration in her photographs of women and culture. In Mediations, San Fransisco Museum of Modern Art pays homage to one of the most important female photographers of all time. This epic retrospective of her work is on view through October.
