The definitive monograph of American
photographer Vivian Maier, exploring the full range and brilliance of
her work and the mystery of her life, written and edited by noted
photography curator and writer Marvin Heiferman and featuring 250
black-and-white images, color work, and other materials never seen
Vivian Maier’s story—the secretive nanny-photographer during her life
who becomes a popular sensation shortly after her death—has, to date,
been pieced together only from previously seen or known images she made
and the handful of facts that have surfaced about her life. During her
lifetime she shot more than 100,000 images, which she kept hidden from
the world. In 2007, two years before her death, Chicago historic
preservationist John Maloof discovered a trove of negatives, and roll
upon roll of undeveloped film in a storage locker he bought at auction.
They revealed a surprising and accomplished artist and a stunning body
of work, which Maloof championed and brought to worldwide acclaim.
Vivian Maier: A Photographer Found presents the most
comprehensive collection and largest selection of the photographer’s
work—created during the 1950s through the 1970s in New York, Chicago,
and on her travels around the country—almost exclusively unpublished and
including her previously unknown color work. It features images of and
excerpts from Maier’s personal artifacts, memorabilia, and audiotapes,
made available for the first time. This remarkable volume draws upon
recently conducted interviews with people who knew Maier, which shed new
light on Maier’s photographic skill and her life.
