Poet of Color Photography

Share:

The color work of street photographer Vivian Maier will be the subject of a new exhibition at the Howard Greenberg Gallery of New York City. From November 14, 2018 through January 5, 2019.

Many of the photographs are on view for the first time, deepening the understanding of Maier’s oeuvre and her keenness to record and present her interpretation of the world around her. Dating from the 1950s to the 1980s, “Vivian Maier: The Color Work” captures the street life of Chicago and New York, and includes a number of her enigmatic self-portraits.

Since 2010, Maier’s photographs have been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. The 2013 documentary film, Finding Vivian Maier, co-directed by historian John Maloof (who discovered her work at an auction in Chicago in 2007), was nominated for an Academy Award.

Vivian Maier (1926–2009) was born in New York City, spent much of her youth in France, worked for 40 years as a nanny mostly in Chicago, and photographed consistently over five decades. When she died, Maier left behind more than 150,000 photographic images—prints, negatives, transparencies, and rolls of undeveloped film—though few had ever heard about or seen her work.
