Vivian Maier (February 1, 1926 – April 21, 2009) was a nanny by day. But she was also secretly a photographer and film maker. Obsessed with capturing real life news in photography yet sworn to her own secrecy and stashing them away throughout her lifetime for no one to see.
However, some cases of negatives were found by collectors in 2007 and eventually by 2009 they gained interest.
Vivian Maiers story and work is incredible yet she never got to witness how the world woke up to one of the best photographers ever.
