Street Photographers, there are gems in the streets visible only to you. There are also gems in your photo archives waiting to be revealed to the world.

At this presentation, Meryl Meisler will share the work of photographers who inspired her along with images and insights from digging through her 40-plus year archive of street-style photographs. Her second book, Purgatory & Paradise SASSY ‘70s Suburbia & The City (Bizarre Publishing), contrasts intimate images of home life on Long Island alongside NYC street and night life and will be available for signing.
