World-renowned photographer and artist Susan Meiselas will lecture and show some of her work at California State University, Sacramento Wednesday, April 21 at 7:30 p.m. in Riverside Hall 1015. The presentation is hosted by the photography program at CSUS.

Meiselas, whose best-known works include her books Carnival Strippers and Nicaragua, June 1978 – July 1979, has recently completed a volume portraying a visual history of Kurdistan with an accompanying interactive website, Her current project is an interactive installation concerning the Dani people of West Papuan Highlands, a region of Indonesia. Meliselas “presents a piece that brings to the surface the intentions, problems and contradictions raised as we try to ‘understand’ the world around us,” according to event coordinator and CSUS photo professor Nigel Poor.

A graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, Meiselas also received a master’s degree from Harvard University and has been a member of the prestigious Magnum Photos agency since 1976. She has also received the Robert Capa Gold Medal, the Leica Award for Excellence, a MacArthur Fellowship and the Hasselblad Prize for her work. “We are extremely pleased that Susan Meiselas accepted our invitation,” said Poor
