VIDEO: “Finding Vivian Maier” (Trailer)

Who is Vivian Maier and how did the unknown, and reclusive street photographer become an art world sensation posthumously?

In 2007 historian and real estate agent John Maloof bought a box of negatives and 16mm film rolls for $380, not knowing that the contents inside would impact the world of street photography forever.

After some digging through the boxes filled with 30,000 negatives, Maloof came to find out the contents were the work of a photographer by the name of Vivian Maier. Although he knew her name, he was unable to find out much more about her until he came across an obituary notice in the Chicago Tribune in 2009.

Maier was born in New York in 1926 and spent time in Paris, Los Angeles, Bangkok, Egypt and countless other places, but for the most part she called Chicago home. In the Wind City she worked as a nanny who hid the fact she was a photographer and rarely ever showed anyone her craft. Due to her reclusive attitude and mysterious ways, Maier’s work has not been shown publicly until now.

Check out the trailer for John Maloof’s upcoming documentary on the mysterious photographer above and take a look at some of Vivian Maier’s work below.
