AMERICAN SUBURB X: INTERVIEW: "Extending the Frame: An Interview with Susan Meiselas" (2006)


As for “new documentary,” I find some of these approaches of interest, particularly the focus on a more distanced “aftermath,” rather than “decisive” moments of engagement. I still feel the dividing line is when photographers re-enact, which is closer to the tradition of docudrama than reportage. Sometimes it is very effective but defining the difference is still important to me.
