The Cedar Lodge is the first photo book by photographer Maya Meissner, which tells the story of her family’s close-encounter with the Yosemite Killer in the late 1990’s.

The project is composed of collages, photos taken as a teenager, altered family snapshots, and photographs made in and around the hotel where it all happened. Meissner investigates her discomfort, grief, confusion, and separation from the twist of fate through these varied perspectives.
