Vivian Maier Street Photographer
Vivian Maier was a professional nanny, who from the 1950s until the 1990s took over 100,000 photographs worldwide - from France to New York City, to Chicago and dozens of other countries - and yet showed the results to no one. The photos are amazing both for the breadth of the work and for the high quality of the humorous, moving, beautiful, and raw images of all facets of city life in America's post-war golden age. It wasn't until realtor and amateur historian John Maloof stumbled upon a box of anonymous negatives that her work was revealed to critical acclaim.
"An undiscovered artist whose photography is now being compared to the giants, a reclusive woman who, in death, is attracting the kind of attention and acclaim she would have shunned in life." - "The Huffington Post"
