Lo sguardo nascosto- Vivian Maier photographer

Vivian Maier è una fotografa di strada la cui vita sembra essere uscita da un romanzo. Nata del 1926 per tutta la vita restò una semplice nanny lavorando per ricche famiglie di New York e Chicago. Morì povera senza aver mai mostrato a nessuno l’incredibile patrimonio di fotografie accumulato in decenni girando per le strade delle metropoli americane. I suoi negativi vennero recuperati per puro caso e ora sono esposti in tutto il mondo. La mostra dedicata alla fotografa si terrà a Brescia, fino al 15 Novembre, presso la Galleria dell’Incisione.

Vivian Maier (February 1, 1926 – April 21, 2009) was an American amateur street photographer  who was born in New York but grew up in France, and after returning to the US, worked for about forty years as a nanny in Chicago. During those years she took about 100,000 photographs, primarily of people and cityscapes most often in Chicago, although she traveled and photographed worldwide. Her photographs remained unknown and mostly undeveloped and unprinted until they were discovered by a local historian, John Maloof, in 2007. Following Maier’s death, her work began to receive critical acclaim.Her photographs have been exhibited in the US, England, Germany, Denmark, and Norway, and have appeared in newspapers and magazines in the US, England, Germany, Italy, France and other countries. A book of her photography titled Vivian Maier: Street Photographer was published in 2011. The exhibition dedicated to the photographer will be held in Brescia, until November 15, at the Galleria dell’Incisione. For more information: www.incisione.com
