Meryl Spiegel is a Long Island photographer who portrays the people, places and
things around her whether she is at home on the East End, roaming Manhattan
or traveling abroad. Her subjects range from street life to seascapes to still life.
Working primarily with a medium-format camera and color film, her images look
more like paintings than photographs.
She has exhibited widely throughout the East End
