Vivian Maier: Works In Color

Share:

Vivian Maier (born 1926 in New York, died 2009 in Chicago) is widely associated with black and white photography. This exhibition focuses on a lesser-known aspect of her oeuvre: works in colour, captured between 1956 and 1986. Compared to her monochrome images, Maier’s colour photographs have a more humorous and playful character. In the course of her forays into colour, Maier increasingly switched from a Rolleiflex to a Leica IIIc and Leica IID.  

Vivian Maier earned a living working as a housekeeper and nanny. A prolific amateur and hobby photographer, she never shared her work with a public audience. In 2007, storage boxes containing Maier’s negatives and prints were auctioned to (among others) Ron Slattery and John Maloof, who initially published a small selection of their discoveries online. Within a short space of time, the quality of Maier’s work drew international attention and posthumous renown.
