The Recently Discovered Street Photography of Vivian Maier


feature

Vivian Maier was an amazing photographer whose talents went unrecognized during her lifetime. Back in 2011, a box filled with Maier’s negatives was discovered at a local thrift auction house in Chicago. Since that time, the American street photographer has become quite the recognizable name in the history of photography.

During her forty years working as a nanny, Maier always found time to document the world around her. She seemed to carry her camera wherever she ventured, particularly along city streets, and directed most of her interest towards the poor and less fortunate.

Maier’s extensive collection of work offers insight into the mind of an artist who was enthralled by the world around her. Her candid work is rich with urban American history. She had an incredible knack for looking in the right place at the right time in order to capture rare and intimate moments.
