From Kassandra Eller’s article for Lenscratch:
My entire life I have wanted to visit New York, not only to see the sights but to connect with the people who choose to call this fanciful city home. Although I have not physically stepped foot on New York soil, Meryl Meisler’s photographs makes it seem as though I have. Through her eyes, the people of New York are bold, youthful, emphatic, and somehow vulnerable in an unexpected way. Meisler shows us humanity that is overlooked on a daily basis, year after year. Though her work spans many generations, the emotions that are presented in each photo remain constant.
