A Tale of Two Cities: Disco Era Bushwick
Meryl Meisler

Published by Bizarre Publishing, 2014

Hardcover, 180 pages, 28 x 21,5 cm

First edition

In A Tale of Two Cities: Disco Era Bushwick, Meryl Meisler juxtaposes her powerful portraits of the crumbling Brooklyn neighborhood she called home alongside a goldmine of candid shots of New York’s nightlife scene in the late 70s.
NYC could best be described using Charles Dickens' phrase “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” Meisler’s photographs documented it with compassion and humor. As the city neared bankruptcy, crime rates rose, epidemics of arson and crack made the Big Apple seem like it was rotting to the core. In the midst of it all, a groundbreaking disco nightlife culture arose.
Meryl Meisler's first monograph presents her never-before-shown disco body of work, plus her images of Bushwick; the largest known documentation of the neighborhood during a desperate decade.

Condition: Very Good. Minor shelfwear and one bumped corner. Interior in great condition.
