Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas is joined in conversation by Amy Sherlock, writer, editor and deputy director of Frieze art fair to discuss the representation of women through the medium of photography.

With a career spanning over four decades, Susan Meiselas has often focused on the visual representation of women and the more marginalised individuals in society. Primarily working within the documentary mode and in collaboration with her subjects, Meiselas is known for her use of photographic conventions to challenge issues around the male gaze and the relationship between photographer and subject.

For this discussion, Meiselas is joined by Amy Sherlock to explore the methods of addressing and challenging the medium of photography as a vehicle for questioning societal norms.
