Susan Meiselas’ first book on the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua in 1978-1979.
At the end of the 1970s, American photographer Susan Meiselas, a member of the Magnum agency, went to Nicaragua and made some of the most widely distributed images of the Sandinista revolution that overthrew the regime of dictator Anastasio Somoza. In 1981, she published a book offering a detailed visual account of the events, a work that is now considered a model in the genre of the photographic essay. As the commemorations unfolded, her photographs were elevated to iconic status, reproduced in abundance as posters and stencils.
