We’ve posted about the remarkable story of Vivian Maier in the past here on dPS. Vivian was a nanny who worked in a number of families – none of which knew she had a secret life of a street photographer.
Over the years she took over 100,000 images between the late 1940’s through to the 1990s – showing them to nobody but storing them in a storage locker which was only discovered after her death when the contents were auctioned without really knowing what treasure was in the negatives and slides in it.
Her images have now been catalogued and a documentary is being made by the owner of the photographs after a kickstarted project.
This week the BBC released part 1 of a documentary on Vivians story. Part 2 shouldn’t be too far off but in the mean time – grab a drink and settle down to watch Vivians story.
