Product Description

Vivian Maier, a professional nanny, during the course of the 50s and 60s, took over 100,000 photographs of Chicago and New York City street scenes – which she showed to no one. The photos are amazing both for the breadth of the work and for the high quality of the humorous, moving, beautiful, and raw images of all facets of city life in America’s post-war golden age. It wasn’t until realtor and amateur historian John Maloof stumbled upon a box of anonymous negatives in a Chicago auction house just a few years ago that any of her marvelous work saw the light of day. After additional research Maloof was able to identify Maier as the artist and track down the rest of her work floating around various auction houses and antique shops in the Chicago area. Presented here for the first time in print, Vivian Maier: Street Photography collects the first wave of the best of her incredible body of work - much of which hasn't been enlarged or in some cases even developed into negatives. Illus., 100+ duotones. 128p. .
