From Jean-Paul Gavard Perret’s article for Le Litteraire:

For the opening of her new address in the Marais, Carole Lambert is showing, for the first time in Paris, the work of New Yorker Meryl Meisler. Inspired by Diane Arbus and Jacques-Henri Lartigue, the photographer, born in 1951, studied with Lisette Model before documenting her own life, camera screwed to her neck.
