The Story Of The Discovery Of Vivian MaierDPMag Published in Blog
Vivian Maier, the Chicago nanny whose comprehensive body of street photography was uncovered accidentally in 2009, has been the darling of the photographic art world recently. And why wouldn’t she—her work, and her story, are almost too good to be true. In all the coverage of Maier and her photographs, though, the one thing I hadn’t yet seen was the story of who found her photographs and how they were discovered. That just changed, though, as Chicago public television station WTTW produced this great ten-minute video that includes interviews with those who knew Maier as well as the real estate agent turned collector who uncovered her photographs. It’s well worth a look, as the images are stunning—and the thought of discovering them is practically overwhelming.
