    One thought on “Vivian Maier: A Photographer Found”

    1. c'è qualcosa di impudìco nel nostro scandagliare la vita di vivian maier. perché anche se ogni elemento della sua storia sembra fatto apposta per alimentare l'alone di mistero che la circonda, e quindi la nostra curiosità postuma sulla "bambinaia fotografa", il suo tratto principale fu la circospezione. quel riservato tenersi fuori da un circuito mediatico del quale avrebbe benissimo potuto far partea dai tempi di mary poppins che una nanny non godeva di tanta celebrità, e maier faceva qual [...]

    2. Street photography is one of my passions. As is people watching. We people are utterly fascinating creatures. And Vivian Maier's photography is exceptionally fascinating. Life, and all it's many hues, told through the lens. Truly captivating. Maier's life story (what little is known about it) is also fascinating. A mystery inside of a riddle behind a lens. She was an extremely eccentric woman, a modern day introverted Mary Poppins of sorts with a camera, who took over 150,000 photographs, hid th [...]

    3. Not everything in this book was new to me. I've read a couple of books about Vivian Maier/her photographs before, and I've seen the documentary about her, Finding Vivian Maier. And let's face it - there's not much to know about her. She's an enigma, which is part of the fascination. But there is some new here. This is the book that introduced Vivian Maier to me as more than a street photographer alone. She also took portraits (although they didn't seem to be present here) and celebrity photos at [...]

    4. Якось дивно, але автор зазначеного видання — не автор тексту. А скоріше голова авторського колективу. Втім, всі деталі зазначено у виданні.Джон Малуф придбав на аукціоні частину фотоархіву та особисті речі Вівьєн Майер — жінки, що протягом життя фотографувала щонайменше [...]

    5. I absolutely love Vivian Maier.John Maloof is an asshole for fabricating information about her life and for profiting off of her life and work.

    6. Vivian Maier è la bambinaia fotografa che è morta senza avere ottenuto né soprattutto cercato la fama che meritava.Il libro presenta una buona selezione di foto e una introduzione di Marvin Heiferman che tocca tutti i temi giusti. Resta soprattutto il fascino di una figura per niente facile da interpretare.

    7. Only through a fluke of luck do we know about Vivian Maier and her work. This reclusive hoarder photographed then stashed a hundred thousand images. Near the end of her life, a Chicago auction house broke her storage into lots. John Maloof, working on a neighborhood history book, bought a box at the auction in 2007 because he thought the photos could work as illustrations. The quality and composition caught his eye. But who took those pictures? And so the mystery began eight years ago. Vivian be [...]

    8. It's difficult to take color photographs in the 20th century and not to have been influenced by William Eggleston, said someone. Or they said something like that. In a few shots, the color ones, you do see some Eggleston, though I'm pretty unclear on whether Vivian Maier ever saw William Eggleston's photography or not. Seems unlikely.Wait, let me start over. These pictures are by and large nothing like William Eggleston. First of all, they're almost all B&W, and don't seem to me to reflect h [...]

    9. Maier was a nanny who lived and worked at various places around Chicago (including at least a couple of jobs in my old home of Wilmette!). John Maloof bought a box of negatives at a rummage sale and once he started looking at the photos, decided that he had discovered a genius. He tracked down additional boxes, to the point where he had over 100,000 negatives and prints. (Mostly negatives; she printed very few shots.) She was truly a woman of mystery; she had an amazing eye but kept her skills t [...]

    10. As a street photographer myself I was excited to receive this new book about Vivian Maier. I have been following her work for a few years and already own several books about her work. I was impressed with the layout of this book. Vivian's self-portraits were interspersed throughout the book, to remind us of the very private person who was shooting these images. I was very impressed by the way the images complimented each other, this took a lot of work and forethought. My approach was to study th [...]

    11. Wow. Inspiring, amazing, as much a detective story as the unlikely discovery of an unlikely master of American photographer. Street photographer and nanny Vivian Maier was able, with her Rolleiflex, to capture the feeling and the people of 1950s-1970s NYC and Chicago. A complicated and difficult person who hoarded tens of thousands of images on film, she was nonetheless also able to reach people and get them to pose for her on city streets. Many of her most brilliant images are self portraits al [...]

    12. A wonderful series of photographs from a photographer who sought great images not fame. John Maloof who discovered the photos of Vivian Maier tells that story in the introduction and then the photos are just terrific. Anyone who is not inspired to make photos regularly after studying this book just doesn't get it. It's the kind of photo book you want to look at over and over again. ( checked "read", but this book cam be read over and over again as each time one gains another insight.

    13. I love her photography. I acknowledge that there's a bit of an odd media fascination with her story, but I can see why: unknown artist during her life, famous after death. Just like Van Gogh; funny that I just read Van Gogh's Ear: The True Story, too! Regardless, many of her pictures are magical.

    14. A love song to photography and photographers, those who call themselves professionals and those who profess only to dabble. Amazing text, beautiful plates. Truly a wonderful book about a wonderful photographer and her work.

    15. I love her photographs, and her story. Never get tired of looking at them. Treated myself to this book after asking for it (fruitlessly) for birthday and Xmas!

    16. This book is amazing. Not only is every photo completely engaging but the text is fascinating. One of the best books of photograpy ever!! Enjoyed book over the documentary of Maiers' life.

    17. I still believe Richard Cahan's "Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows" provides a better overview of the Vivian Maier story. Sorry Maloof.
