thumbnail Finding Vivian Maier – USA (2013)

Documentary, Event , trackback

When John Maloof bought an unmarked box of undeveloped negatives back in 2007, he had no idea that he had just stumbled upon one of the 20th century’s most important treasure troves of street photography and self-portraiture. The photographer, Vivian Maier, a secretive and eccentric nanny, took tens of thousands of photos of everyday Chicago and showed them to no one. Finding Vivian Maier follows Maloof as he embarks on a quest to reveal the woman behind the Rolleiflex camera. Part retrospective, part detective story, it is a touching portrait of a woman haunted by her past.
