A half century of hidden photos explored in new documentary

A new documentary called ‘Finding Vivian Maier‘ traces the life of Vivian Maier, a career nanny whose formerly unknown cache of 100,000 photographs was discovered after her death in 2009. Since her death, Maier has gained a reputation as one of America’s most astute photographers.

From 1951 until her death, Maier worked in Chicago but spent her free time on the city’s streets photographing people with amazing sensitivity and humanity. And yet, few knew of Maier’s photos. The movie was directed by historian and photographer John Maloof.  It tells Maier’s story through her images, recordings, home movies and interviews.
