Find, Polish and Share the Gems

You’ve been gradually building up an archive, whether photographing for a few years or decades. So how do you dig through what you have, make sense of it, and get it out in the world while you are alive and kicking?

From Meryl’s personal experience and lessons learned, this workshop aims to help guide you through editing, organizing, recognizing bodies of works, and getting your photography exhibited and published. Throughout the creative journey, there are many pitfalls. We will address finding supportive community, picking yourself up again, and continuing to create anew.

You have a treasure trove that deserves discovery. Let’s begin the journey together!

This course is strictly limited to 12 students.

Meryl Meisler (www.merylmeisler.com) inspired by Diane Arbus, enrolled in a photography class at The University of Wisconsin–Madison. She moved to NYC in 1975 and studied with Lisette Model while photographing her Long Island hometown and the city around her. After working as a freelance illustrator by day, Meryl frequented and photographed the infamous New York Discos. As a 1978 CETA Artist grant recipient, Meryl created a portfolio of photographs exploring her Jewish Identity for the American Jewish Congress. After CETA, Meryl began a 31-year career as an NYC Public School Art Teacher. Upon retiring from teaching, she began releasing large bodies of previously unseen work in exhibits and books. Her monographs A Tale of Two Cities: Disco Era Bushwick (BIZARRE), Purgatory & Paradise SASSY ’70s Suburbia &; The City (BIZARRE), and New York PARADISE LOST Bushwick Era Disco (Parallel Pictures Press) received international praise. A book of her street photography from 1973 to 2022 (Eyeshot) is forthcoming. Meryl is an honoree of the 2021 Center for Photography at Woodstock Affinity Award. Time Magazine includes her on their list of the greatest unsung female photographers of the past century. Meryl continues to dig through her archive while continuing her visual memoir. The best is yet to be revealed. ClampArt represents her work.
