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.”
