The Vivian Maier Movie
If you've read this blog with any regularity, chances are good that you've picked up on my affinity for the story of Vivian Maier. Well now I'm rejoicing again because Ms. Maier's silver screen debut is almost here! The Chicago nanny who spent decades creating some of the most amazing street photography ever seen—even though it was never seen outside of her own files prior to her 2009 death—has become one of the most prominent names in 20th century street photography. It turns out that her photographs are only part of the story; the lady herself was quite a mystery too. She's a mystery that is explored in greater depth via this upcoming documentary about her life and work. I, for one, can't wait.
