The Revealed World of Vivian Maier
Margaret Keane of the film “Big Eyes” couldn’t call her paintings hers because her pushy husband took all the credit, but Vivian Maier’s genius was obscured by time: working as a nanny throughout her life, 15,000 negatives were found undeveloped in the attic that she lived in after her death. With a Rolleiflex hung around her neck, Maier took advantage of the camera, as it was designed to take discrete snapshots of people without them knowing. A self-described spy, the photographer captured 20th century street scenes of New York and Chicago, as well as “mirror selfies,” posing without the slightest of smiles against a glass storefront. Through Sep 20.
