The Amazing & Enigmatic Vivian Maier
Maybe by now you've heard about Vivian Maier, the career Chicago nanny whose photos and negatives were discovered shortly before her death in 2009, revealing someone who was much more than an inspired amateur. Arguably she was a master, though during her life she pursued her art in complete anonymity. Amazing. Aside from the manifold aesthetic merits to her work, she offers us a cool look at mid-century urban life.
