A good street photographer must be possessed of many talents: a tireless ability to constantly shoot, and never miss a moment. Self-taught Vivian Maier is all of these things, a professional nanny, who from the 1950s until the 1990s took over 100,000 photographs worldwide—from France to New York City to Chicago and dozens of other countries—and yet showed the results to no one. The photos are amazing for the humorous, moving, beautiful, and raw images of all facets of city life in America’s post-war golden age. It wasn’t until local historian John Maloof purchased a box of Maier’s undeveloped negatives from a Chicago auction house, and began collecting and championing her marvelous work just a few years ago, that any of it saw the light of day. Presented here for the first time in print, this book collects the best of her incredible, unseen body of work.
