From Dimitris Kavatziklis’ article for LiFO Greece:
Photographer Meryl Meisler’s journey into street photography began in the early 1970s when she began documenting life in the suburbs of Long Island. Soon, she found herself capturing Manhattan’s nightlife in Bushwick. Her vast archive, which only came to light in 2010, is now on display alongside her most recent works in a five-decade retrospective, mymodernmet reports.
The exhibition is titled Meryl Meisler | Simply Scintillating: A Retrospective and host at CLAMP Gallery in Chelsea. Mixing her vintage street photography with new work, it’s clear that Meisler’s desire to highlight her LGBTQ and Jewish identity alongside life on the streets of New York has remained the same for 50 years.
