Finding Vivian Maier 2014

Yesterday I watched the documentary on the elusive Vivian Maier, and John Maloof’s discovery and pursuit to find out more about the mysterious photographer.

A thorough insight into a private photographer’s life and obsession for capturing every detail of human behaviour. She had a wonderful appreciation of every emotion, whether it be tragedy or love, she could capture it so beautifully. Perhaps her life as a nanny not only served as a possible way of finding time for her photography, but also because she genuinely cared for people – and this translated into her work.
