MEISELAS, Susan. Lisa & Jojo & Dee & Pina & Carol & Frankie & Julia & Phylis & Tina & Roseann & Roe: Prince Street Girls.

(Paris): Galerie Catherine and Andre Hug, 2013.  First edition.  Octavo.  Unpaginated.  Scarce catalogue published to coincide with the exhibition, Prince Street Girls at Galerie Catherine, November 2013.  The catalogue is illustrated with 26 photographic images (on fold-out pages) that document the daily lives of a group of local Italian-American pre-teen girls, who in the mid-1970s made the corner of Prince Street and Mott street their stomping ground. Meiselas’ was able to capture the girls’ social interactions and the synergy of their tight-knit group, some of whom were also related, to reveal an intimate and sprawling view of the girls’  formative years in an ever-changing city.  A very good copy in card covers with thin card outer sheet.  One of 200 handmade, numbered, copies.  This example inscribed by the photographer on the title-page.  Rare, and contains more images than the later book publications.
