From the The Times of Israel:

The American Jewish photographer Meryl Meisler is currently exhibiting at the Portrait (s) festival, a photographic meeting of the City of Vichy, until 4 September.

In this exhibition organized at the Palace of Congresses, the artist plunges with impertinence and humor to visitors in a fascinating city and era, New York of the 1970s and 1980s, where all semblance of effervescence.

His clichés celebrate all the time the merry life of the Meryl Meisler family, disco nights, punks bars and strip-tease clubs, as well as the suburbs of Long Island or the life of a college in one of the neighborhoods the most dangerous in Brooklyn.

Nouvel An, bar-mitzvah, marriages, moments entre proches… The life of this united and happy family is approached with different aspects, showing a certain form of freedom and insufficiency.

Meisler grew up in Long Island, New York, and attended the University of Wisconsin in the Midwest. She moved to New York in 1975.
