Typically we publish our podcast every other Thursday, but I’m adding a special one this week because I am so take with the work of today’s guest Meryl Meisler who I had the pleasure of meeting in person at the Miami Street Photography Festival back in December.

Meryl is a native of new York City is a photographer, teacher and author who has been recording her life and the world around her with a camera since the 1970’s. Inspired by masters Diane Arbus and Helen Levitt she has her own unique style that is both artistic and historical.

Meryl will be our featured photographer in the May issue of Street Photography Magazine of this year after she returns from being the artist in residence at both YADDO in Saratoga Springs New York and Lightwork in Syracuse.

In the meantime here’s a recording of our conversation with Meryl where she shares both the photographic and life lessons she learned during her journey.
