Finding Vivian Maier.

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

"Finding Vivian Maier" is a documentary about a nanny and now-legendary photographer whose 100,000 snapshots from the streets of Chicago and New York went undiscovered for decades. Seven years ago, they were unearthed in an auction - and the process of piecing together the artist's story began. I'm seeing the film today, and I can't wait. Find showtimes in your city, here. (Below, a few of Maier's self portraits.)


Said Maier, "I suppose nothing is meant to last forever. We have to make room for other people. It's a wheel. You get on, you have to go to the end. And then somebody has the same opportunity to go to the end and so on."

Learn more about "Finding Vivian Maier" (and watch the trailer), here. Find more photos on the Vivian Maier website.
