I just saw this book a few days ago, and was very happy to found it! And I would have loved to be in Paris to see the exhibitions of her photos!

I saw both shows- Brandeis University and Howard Greenberg. Amazing. Bought 2 of her books.

Her street photography book is probably the best of all time… She is an endless source of inspiration, one whom I’ve looked to for a good deal of influence. And her story is equally amazing when you realise no one ever saw her photos, for almost the entirety of her life.

Bought the Vivian Maier – Street Photographer. Simply brilliant with the quality of a Rolleiflex film. the last pages of this book also have selfies from her. Stunning photos from old NY.

The ones from the 50s and 60s are from when she worked as a nanny in Chicago

This is real passion and art when digital era was not there yet and photography was a hobby not a job. She had a particular way to see the streets and the people. Great post!

I can’t wait to see the film about her!
Her story is so fascinating. She is the original street photographer and such an inspiration <3

What a coincidence, just saw an exhibition of her photos at a gallery this afternoon. I’m a huge fan.

I think she is grand, but…The beauty of art is for me that you can capture a moment of beauty and share it with the rest of the world. If you are able to catch the beauty of a moment, like she was, why wouldn’t you share it? Like you do? I think that is why i have to say i love your work better, Sartorialist. Thanks for sharing and for inspiring me to give the world a better look in search for a moment of blizz:)

@chantalvanwees … I enjoyed your comments and I wonder what if for some people the way to understand the world itself is art and not necessarily some thing they want to share? Perhaps they need to funnel their energies into art to understand, shape, and interpret the world around them. I think of Emily Dickinson and Emily Bronte whose works were created outside of the public eye and whose works were really known because of their sisters interest and belief in their work to have it published. I’m sure there are others who fall in this category. I agree its awesome to have people like the Sartorialist share their visions of the world but I like the idea that some people are shy, that some people want to create worlds but not necessarily share them with the entire world. To me their is some beauty in that too.
