VIVIAN MAIER: THE SECRET STREET PHOTOGRAPHER
Unbeknownst to many, Vivian Maier was perhaps the most prolific pioneering street photographer of her time. She was a nanny by day, but in between her travels she would make use of her capturing skills. Her legacy wasn’t truly appreciated until recently, when her archive of over 100k photos was bought and revealed in 2007. The following BBC documentary sheds more light on her clandestine story. It’s a must-watch for any photographer, as Maier may have very well been the godmother of modern street photography.
