A 26 years old real estate agent buys a box with thousands of negatives and may have discovered one of the finest street photographers of the mid 20th century: a Chicago nanny called Vivian Maier. While the story itself isn't really news anymore, it has not lost any of its fairy tale romance…
Discovering the unknown photographer
there was a nice vivian maier exhibition at kings x a couple of years ago. 'a life uncovered'. i think it was being toured around - v much worth going along if it is near you.
Great film. It reminds me of Henry Darger. The difference was that Darger was prolific but bizarre very disturbing. Maier seems to have been a genuine talent.
