Vivian Maier: Street Photographer Book

There was a time when street photography had a very little to do with how crisp your Goodyear welted oxfords were or how cleverly you managed to accessorize your double breasted blue blazer. A whole raft of amazing photographers looked to capture characters, unguarded moments and odd looking folk carrying on with their everyday business. Vivian MaierVivian Maier: Street Photographer Book was one of the best. She was in fact a nanny for most of her life; shooting was her hobby. During her life Maier took more than 100,000 photographs, all of which went unseen until discovered by historian John Maloof a few years ago. Vivian Maier: Street PhotographerVivian Maier: Street Photographer Book, coming November 22 on Powerhouse, draws together some of her best work from the 50’s and 60’s in all its duotone glory. Available from AmazonVivian Maier: Street Photographer Book.
