»Recently, several books have dealt with the problem of the retrospective monograph, those by Anna Fox and Sophie Calle for instance, but none better than Susan Meiselas’s »IN HISTORY«. Susan might be termed a ‘postmodern’ reportage photographer, in that she always builds in the question of getting the story and the complex ethical issues involved, even as she presents them, and this book gives us the ‘back stories’ in exhaustive detail and with intelligence and passion — as well as exhibiting great In History and excellent book craft.«
