Vivian Maier: Who Took Nanny's Pictures?
United Kingdom | 2013 | Jill Nicholls
The late street photographer Vivian Maier is the shutterbug of the moment. Born in New York in 1926, raised in France, and living and working as a nanny in Chicago for 40 years, the reclusive Maier was secretly a prolific, self-taught photographer who documented life in the Windy City for decades. But her thousands of stunning pictures were never shown during her lifetime and, in fact, were only discovered after her 2009 death. A selection of Maier’s work will be seen in the show “Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows,” 1/10-2/23 at the Cleveland Print Room, 2550 Superior Ave. This BBC documentary about her is being shown in conjunction with the exhibition.
50 min. DVD.
