Vivian Maier Revealed: Selections from the Archives at Madelyn Jordon Fine Art
This survey exhibition features a broad selection of black and white photographs by American street photographer Vivian Maier (1926 – 2009), mostly taken in the 1950’s – 1960’s. Unknown during her lifetime, Maier worked as a full-time nanny while pursuing photography during her leisure time. These candid images provide a glimpse of the lives and experiences of everyday people during the post-war golden age in Chicago and New York. Depicting ordinary people caught in a transient moment, Maier’s indelible images capture the rich and poor, the young and the old, whites and blacks. She also turned the camera on herself in a series of striking self-portraits. Discovered by John Maloof in 2007 in a Chicago auction house, Maier’s photographs have been exhibited internationally and received significant critical attention.
From June 2018 – August 2018
