About the Movie

Who is Vivian Maier? Now considered one of the 20th century's greatest street photographers, Vivian Maier was a mysterious nanny who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that went unseen during her lifetime. Since buying her work by chance at auction, amateur historian John Maloof has crusaded to put this prolific photographer in the history books. Maier's strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never-before-seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.

Wow, what a discovery.

I enjoyed this film immensely. What a find to uncover all of these images at an auction. Then to go on to discover so much about her very private life. An amazing piece of work and journey of discovery.


Fascinating look into the strange and sad life of an extraordinary artist who time nearly forgot. Makes you wonder how many Vivian Maier's are out there unclaimed by their generation, and how many great works go unseen and untouched.
