Description

Vivian Maier (1926–2009) was an American photographer whose extensive body of work has stormed into the public eye since her death with numerous exhibitions and a documentary film.

Maier remained a keen photographer throughout her adult life but never sought to showcase her work. Instead, she earned her living working as a nanny for 40 years, working for several families in New York and Chicago from the 1950s.

The motifs in Maier's photographs include street life, portraits of unknown people and the worlds of the children she knew. She also liked to capture herself in the frame, either on a reflective surface or as the photographer's shadow.
