Originally published in 1981, Susan Meiselas’s Nicaragua is a seminal work of concerned photojournalism. Meiselas’s images trace the evolution of the popular resistance that led to the insurrection, culminating with the triumph of the Sandinista revolution in July 1979. With iconic images such as “Molotov Man” and “The Masks of Monimbó,” the photographs comprising Nicaragua shaped and inspired a generation.
