I’m very excited about this upcoming documentary on the amazing – and secret – photographer, Vivian Maier. Never in life did she show her thousands of photos to anyone, but worked as a nanny, and packed away all of her slides and negatives. Only after those negatives were purchased at auction after her death was her incredible talent discovered. Ryan first read about her a few months back and introduced me to her work, and each page of the coffee table book I bought is more outstanding than the last.
Everything that I have learned about her so far says that she was an intensely private person, and yet all of her portraits are so stark and personal that it almost seems as if there was no one there with a camera at all.
