Film Screening: Finding Vivian Maier

  • Artspace, Level 2, Seminar Room (2.06) 43–51 Cowper Wharf Roadway Woolloomooloo, NSW, 2011 Australia (map)

The brilliant eye of underground photographer Vivian Maier came to light in 2007 when John Maloof discovered her work at an auction house in Chicago. Maier was a French-American woman who worked as a nanny most of her life, but secretly took over 100,000 photographs, hiding her creative life from those around her. Discovered decades later, Maier is now considered among the 20th century’s greatest street photographers. In this critically acclaimed documentary Maier’s mysterious ‘other’ life is revealed.
