The Vivian Maier Mystery

Wed, Oct 24 / 7 pm
Fri – Sun, Oct 26 – 28 / 7 pm
Directed by Jill Nichols
2013, UK, 50 min

Vivian Maier was a nanny working in New York and Chicago who, unbeknownst to many, had a secret passion for photography. When she died in 2009 at age eighty-three, she left behind thousands of photographs, an incredible body of work that established her as one of the century’s master street photographers. This film is packed with her extraordinary work shot on the street in Chicago in the 1950’s and early 60’s and features interviews with Pamela Bannos, a photographer and senior lecturer at Northwestern, Jeffrey Goldstein, who owns the second largest collection of her work next to John Maloof, various gallery owners and the man who bought the contents of her storage locker only to discover a treasure trove.

Not to be confused with John Maloof’s documentary Finding Vivian Maier released in 2014, The Vivian Maier Mystery was made for the BBC, released in 2013 and focuses more on her work as an artist, with an exploration of what her process and influences were and how they informed her work.

“By taking the same steps that my mother did, visiting the same photographic haunts and talking to her friends about her life and work, I learned more about her approach.” – Delf Gravert

A presentation in conjunction with the Flash Photographic Festival. 

Reviews

The Vivian Maier Mystery gives an excellent idea of her body of work and just how uniquely talented she was.
