American documentary photographer and Magnum member, Susan Meiselas, captures the Nicaraguan revolution of the 1970s for her book Nicaragua.
“Originally published in 1981, Susan Meiselas’s Nicaragua is a contemporary classic— a seminal contribution to the literature of concerned photojournalism. John Berger praised the work for its ability to “take us right inside a revolutionary moment. . . . Yet unlike most photographs of such material, these refuse all the rhetoric normally associated with such pictures: the rhetoric of violence, revolutionary heroism, and the glorification of misery.”
The 2008 edition includes Pictures from a Revolution, a DVD in which Meiselas returns to the scenes she originally photographed, tracking down the subjects and interviewing them about the reality of post-revolution Nicaragua. The DVD booklet features a new interview with Meiselas in which she discusses the history of the project.” https://www.lensculture.com/books/6696-susan-meiselas-nicaragua
