from Gianna Riso’s article for The Little Rebellion:
Born and raised in Nassau County, NY, Meryl Meisler is an archival photographer who’s a member of the Women Photographers Collective of the mid-Hudson valley. In her recent exhibition, “Simply Scintillating: A Retrospective,” Meisler reflects on the various subjects that grew close to her heart during her college years in the mid-1970s, including her life in Bushwick, New York City nightlife and different forms of portraiture. She made her living for most of her life as an art education teacher in New York, where she continued to photograph as a hobby. Wherever she went, she would bring her camera. This holds true to this day.
