From Aline Smithson’s article for Lenscratch:

I love photographs of New York City in the 1970’s and 80’s, when the city was at its worst and at its best, filled with a raw energy, graffiti covered subway cars, fueled by cocaine and poppers, throbbing nightclubs providing endless nights of fantasy and nights of abandon and connection. Fortunately, photographer Meryl Meisler was there to document the craziness, the clubs, and well, all the rest.

Opening July 14th and running through August 15th, Meryl Meisler’s QUIRKYVISION will be installed at Le Palais des Congrès de Vichy during the PORTRAIT(S) Tenth Annual Festival in Vichy, France.
