Publisher's Description

Edition of 500 copies, each with a signed, 6 × 4-inch print by Susan Meiselas.

In 2016, Susan Meiselas was invited by Multistory to visit the Black Country in the West Midlands, UK. The resulting book, A Room of Their Own, is a multilayered, visual story comprised of Meiselas’ photographs, first hand testimonies and original art works from women in refuge.

A few months before the launch of the book in May 2017, The Photographers’ Gallery asked Meiselas to exhibit a print for their Touchstone programme, where visitors are invited to respond to a photograph through writing and drawing. The response card asks a simple question: “What do you see?”

This publication, A View of a Room, reproduces a selection of the responses that were submitted alongside a signed 6 x 4-inch archival print of the photograph Meiselas chose to contribute — Ritu’s Room (shown below).

The publisher will donate a percentage of proceeds from the sale of this publication to Women’s Aid.

Shortlisted for the 2018 Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photography Catalogue Award.
