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 above).

A percentage of proceeds from the sale of this publication will be donated to Women’s Aid.

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