Beautiful, heartbreaking, and moving - as always.
This glossy volume of 275 high-quality photographs will certainly give you a very clear idea of how acutely perceptive street-photographer, Vivian Maier's eye was for capturing such impressive images as these on camera of everyday, city life during America's post-war golden age.
For anyone who isn't at all familiar with who Vivian Maier was - There is very little known about her personal life..... Born in NYC (in 1926) - Maier worked as a nanny for over 20 years.
Throughout her life she took hundreds-of-thousands of photographs which she stored away in countless boxes, never showing them to anyone.... It wasn't until local, amateur historian, John Maloof purchased a box full of Maier's negatives (by chance) at an auction and from there he (thankfully) brought her marvellous work to light for the rest of the world to see and enjoy.
*Note* - In 2009 - Vivian Maier (at the age of 83) died in near poverty, a complete unknown.
This was a great book to learn more about Vivian Maier, the person and the photographer. Pages are beautifully printed, quite large.
