From The Pictorial List’s interview with Meryl Meisler:
Upon retiring from the New York City public school system in 2010, Meryl began releasing large bodies of previously unseen work. She continues to live and work in New York City, working on the photographic memoir she began in 1973. Meryl’s street photographs are her own unique American story. They radiate joy, but do not shy away from contrasting this with a background of hardship. In this interview we are delighted to speak to Meryl about her first steps into photography, her time as a school teacher, how she got into the disco scene, her inspirations, and working and living during this challenging period of Covid-19.
