Vivian Maier : “Shadows” (Photography)

::

“We anticipate her collection of works will take on a life of its own and are curious
to see where it may go. In fact, we’re fascinated by the progress made thus far…”

Driven by her sequestered, private motivations, Vivian Maier captured our cities, suburbs and rural towns. A nanny for many years, herself childless, Maier revealed the beauties and complexities of domesticity. Her photographs demonstrate an intimate exploration of family life, as well as seemingly allegorical treatments of “home”—a space sometimes idyllic and whole, and sometimes troubled—as in her photographs of homes destroyed by tornadoes or street riots. In this present collection, we witness her sophisticated, expansive approach to setting and subject matter both intimate and grand.

The photographic subjects range from Salvador Dali to Nixon; from poignant self-portraits to photos of the unnamed on the street. She documented the exhilaration of Macy’s parades, along with the quiet of cemeteries, scenes of road kill, the life of flowers and her worldwide travels. In addition to Europe and the United States, those travels included places as diverse as Egypt, Malaysia, the Philippines and more. Through surveying her selection of deeply varied subject matter, we are allowed an intimate view of Vivian Maier, obscure photographer extraordinaire. [Extract : Vivian Maier - The Story]
