Vivian Maier: Self-portraits and its Double at Magazzino delle Idee
Vivian Maier (1926-2009) worked in the early 1950s and, for over forty years after that, as a nanny in New York and then in Chicago.
Her entire life was spent in anonymity until 2007 when her photographic corpus came to light. It was a huge and impressive body of work, consisting of more than 120,000 negatives, super 8 and 16mm films, various audio recordings, a few photographs, and hundreds of undeveloped rolls of film. Her all-consuming hobby ended up making her one of the most acclaimed proponents of street photography and, in Photography History, she ranks alongside Diane Arbus, Robert Frank, Helen Levitt and Garry Winogrand.
