A photographer and documentarist, Meiselas is most famous for her work on Central America both through the use of photographs and film. The most important body of work she did, from my point of view, concerns the portrait of a revolution (the Sandinist revolution in Nicaraguain the 1980s) by registering history in its making which she characterizes as follows: “what happened in Nicaragua, I wanted to register the voices of the subjects that are embedded, I hope, as objects in my photographs. By knowing and recognizing its limits, the voice of the protagonist within the picture, challenges the image as a fixed moment in time” (see more).
