Finding Vivian Maier

Hailed as one of the greatest 20th Century photographers along with Diane Arbus Robert Frank and  Henri Cartier-Bresson, I  posted about Vivian Maier a couple of years ago. Nowness recently featured some of her unseen experimentation with film, which has a beautiful, Instagram like quality. Something we try really hard to re-create these days!

Finding Vivian Maier is a documentary about her life and premieres at Toronto Film Festival. Directed by Maloof and Charlie Siskel, the film tells of the discovery of Maier’s hidden archive and slowly unravels her touching story. “She had few friends, never had a family of her own, and moved from place to place,” says Siskel. “There was little that was consistent in life; the one constant was her photography. With that, she never compromised.”

    I heard about her but this doc seems really to capture her unique talent and life….and in the days before Instagram it is amazing what she managed to do with a traditional camera!
