About the work
Vivian Maier
American, 1926–2009

Vivian Maier was a photography hobbyist whose output would become an influential body of work in the 20th-century street photography. Maier was a nanny and caregiver with a hidden passion for photography that resulted in over 100,000 negatives—mostly discovered posthumously. She picked up a camera for the first time in 1947 and worked late into the 1990s capturing her favored subjects: fleeting moments and images from her urban surroundings in Chicago and New York, touching upon destitution, urban development, pedestrian culture, and the American identity. Her later works featured fewer figures and took more interest in found objects, graffiti, and detritus.
