Press Feature – The New Yorker

In 1977, Meryl Meisler, a photographer with an eye for the zany and the performative, went backstage at Ringling’s annual run at Madison Square Garden. (Some of her photos from that day will appear in the forthcoming third volume of a collection of her work from the seventies.) At the time, Meisler was mostly shooting in the clubs and discos of New York. She was interested, she told me, in the seemingly simple phenomenon of “people being out of their homes with other people,” gathering together and performing for one another and, in doing so, “creating a new society, a new community.”
