1029 Finding Vivian Maier

I saw the documentary film, “Finding Vivian Maier” this weekend. I highly recommend the movie. If you are at all interested in photography it is important to learn about Vivian Maier. She was one of the best photographers of the 20th Century and was totally unknown until after her death. Her story is a fascinating mystery that will never be solved. But she left behind an incredible collection of wonderful photographs.

Her work is now owned by two different people/organizations…whatever…it’s split into two groups with both groups producing books and movies. I recommend getting one or more of the books of her work as well as seeing the movies. You can see some of her work on these web sites:

Check out the fantastic photography of Vivian Maier. And, really, see the film, “Finding Vivian Maier.”

The photo with this post is a self-portrait by Vivian Maier. It’s the “cover photo” for the movie. She took many self-portraits. One of the books that has been published of her work is all self-portraits. I own that book and it is wonderful.
