- "In 2016, Multistory invited me 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 my photographs, first hand testimonies and original art works from women in refuge. In my photographs, each room, like each life, is unique. The image of a space is record and also a kind of mirror. The woman is absent, yet present. Not everyone offered to open their doors, but I gave a print to those who did. These photographs may serve as a memory of each landscape, at a particular point in time. A few months before the launch of the book in May 2017, The Photographers' Gallery asked me 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 book contains a print of the image I chose to contribute - 'Ritu's Room' - and a selection of responses that were submitted. Susan Meiselas, 2018"--inside back flap of dust jacket.
Reproduced handwritten texts. Offset lithoprint on uncoated recycled paper, French fold dust jacket with flaps. Photographic print signed by artist. Response card.
