INFO

Touchstone is a display featuring a single photograph on our Eranda Studio Floor. Visitors are invited to respond to the photograph, through writing and drawing, using pencils and cards provided. You can see how others have responded to past and current displays here. This programme links with The Photographers' Gallery's wider educational emphasis on visual literacy.

The current display, from 3 March to 11 June, shows an image from A Room of Their Own, a visual narrative combining images, testimony and collages. It was created through a series of collaborative workshops with photographer Susan Meiselas and women of The Haven refuge in Wolverhampton over 2015 and 2016. The project was commissioned by the West Bromwich-based arts organisation Multistory.

Susan Meiselas (b. 1948, Baltimore, Maryland) joined Magnum Photos in 1976 and has worked as a freelance photographer since then. She is known for her documentary work across a range of subjects and relationships over time, in particular her coverage of human rights issues in Latin America.

A Room of Their Own will be published in May 2017 and available from The Photographers’ Gallery Bookshop.
