About Vivian MaierView Profile »
Vivian Maier (American, 1926-2009) was a street photographer who captured the wonders and the idiosyncrasies of urban life, particularly those of her native Chicago, along with New York and Los Angeles. Working for over forty years as a nanny in Chicago’s North Shore, Maier pursued photography as a purely introspective hobby. With her work spanning over forty years, from the 1950s to the 1990s, she left behind a body of work that exceeded 100,000 negatives. Her contribution to photography was not perceived as an artistic revelation until 2007, when John Maloof discovered her photographs at a local thrift auction house in Chicago. Maier’s understanding of light, frame, and moment converge to produce images that are both beautiful and culturally significant.Interested in consigning works by Vivian Maier? Learn more »
