幸运快3Vivian Maier’s life has proven to be one of the most enduring and fascinating art world narratives of the last decade。 The story of this Chicago-based nanny who pursued photography in her spare time has inspired an Oscar-nominated documentary film and several books。 Through her secret pastime, Maier walked countless miles in many cities; capturing images of city life in the 1950s, 60s and 70s。 She amassed more than 2,000 rolls of film, 3,000 prints and more than 120,000 negatives, which she shared with virtually no one in her lifetime。

A collection of Maier’s street and travel photography was discovered by John Maloof in 2007 at an auction house in Chicago. Since her work came to light, Maier’s indelible images have gone on to garner worldwide acclaim through several exhibitions, including Vivian Maier: In Her Own Hands.

Maier’s photos feature children, women, the elderly and strangers on the street, as well as striking self-portraits。 Her unique viewpoint captured fascinating characters and surprising moments on film。 While much of her life remains shrouded in mystery, her photographs have been firmly embraced as those of a true master。
