Vivian Maier Révélée


Without the unlikely discovery of a batch of anonymous photographs at an auction in 2007, Vivian Maier’s work would never have been known. This extraordinary photographer (New York, 1926 – Chicago, 2009) produced, throughout her life, a considerable body of work (more than 140,000 images), never shown during her lifetime. A keen observer of her time, she was able to capture with acuity the universality of the human condition. Recognised as one of the major artists of the 20th century, the infatuation and fascination with the photographer has now spread far beyond the circle of amateurs. But who was Vivian Maier really? This biography, illustrated with more than 400 previously unpublished photographs and documents, is the result of six years of research and finally lifts the veil on the life of this secretive and solitary character. The author, Ann Marks, reveals the frailties and strengths of a free, feminist and committed woman with a life-saving sense of humour.
