Join Aperture and Magnum Photos for a conversation between two of Magnum's leading female photographers, Susan Meiselas and Bieke Depoorter.


Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with Magnum Photos, is pleased to present a night of conversation between Susan Meiselas and Bieke Depoorter. Join us for a night filled with insight and discussion between two of Magnum’s leading female photographers.

Meiselas and Depoorter, who both joined the agency in their early twenties, will discuss the nature of their work as documentary photographers—exploring both the challenging and rewarding aspects of this field. Both photographers are known for working intimately with their subjects, immersing themselves in new environments, and developing unique approaches in their long-term projects. Two photographers of different generations, they will discuss the changing ways in which photographers capture today’s social and political landscape in the US and worldwide. 

The conversation will be followed by a book signing.
