Meryl Meisler, An Interview
Monday, March 7, 2016
Picture it: Massapequa, 1973. In a little Jewish and Italian enclave just outside of New York City, glamour and glitz was flourishing, nourishing itself, eagerly yearning for its close-up, in full hair and makeup. Homes were styled to the nines, as outlandish décor provided the perfect backdrop for a cast of characters delightfully parading about. A young Meryl Meisler was there, camera in hand, to document the lives of her friends, family, and neighbors.
Two years later, she moved to the city to be a freelance illustrator, tripping the light fantastic at nightclubs including CBGBs, Studio 54, Hurrah, Xenon, among other hot spots. All the while, Meisler captured it all on film, creating an incomparable collection of photographs of the era. A selection of 35 black and white prints is now on view in Meryl Meisler at Steven Kasher Gallery, New York, now through April 9, 2016. Meisler speaks about those heady days of the 1970s.
