VIVIAN MAIER……Photographer……1950’s

VIVIAN MAIER………..born in New York City………moved to Europe…..but returned to NY in1951.  This ids a story of a nanny………….who bought a Rollieflex camera………and shot 100,000’s of negatives…….in New York. She moved to Chicago………..where she was a nanny to three sons of the Gensburgs family. She died in 2009………….leaving behind 3 storage lockers filled with her negatives and thousand of rolls of undeveloped film.  He lockers were auctioned off.  John Maloof was one of the buyers.

We have him to thank for rescuing the work of a lifetime of a photographer who documented whatever caught her eye in photos, film and sound.

Vivian never shared her photos with anyone………..so I wonder if she would have chosen the ones I have chosen to share with you!
