Winter/Spring Exhibition - Finding Vivian Maier Guided Tour
What are the odds of a camera-toting babysitter becoming a famous photographer? Vivian Maier (1926-2009) worked as a nanny for about forty years on Chicago’s North Shore, taking candid shots of people while on field trips with her young charges. Children playing tag, ladies admiring shop windows, and men waiting for the bus are among the approximately 100,000 photographs by Maier, which were shot in black and white and later color film. Maier became an instant celebrity posthumously when an anonymous trunk of undeveloped film came up at auction in 2009. The purchaser later posted the images on the Internet, catching the attention of art critics world-wide. Students will discuss the difference between traditional photography and digital imagery, learn what makes a successful composition, and talk about the art tradition of street photography.
