« Originally published in 1981, Susan Meiselas’s ‘Nicaragua’ is a contemporary classic – a seminal contribution to the literature of concerned photojournalism. ‘Nicaragua’ forms an extraordinary narrative of a nation in turmoil. Starting with a powerful and chilling evocation of the Somoza regime during its decline in the late 1970s, the images trace the evolution of the popular resistance that led to the insurrection, culminating with the triumph of the Sandinista revolution in 1979. (…) In 2008, on the thirtieth anniversary of the popular insurrection, and of Meiselas’s first trip to Nicaragua, Aperture published a new edition. Now, as the fortieth anniversary approaches, Aperture is pleased to reissue the book with an augmented reality function. » (extrait du texte de présentation). Photos en couleurs. Troisième édition.
