Vivian Maier is a photographer who died in 2009, never seen before color images displayed in an exhibition at Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York. The exhibition called ‘Vivian Maier: The Color Work’ and shows the highlights of her passion for photography.
The incredible talent of Maier was discovered by chance just a few years before she passed away when a real estate agent came across with the material of her storage locker. Inside, over 100,000medium negatives were founded along with undeveloped rolls of film and thousands of prints.
She became a well-known posthumously for her considered approach to black and white street photography. However, at the time of the documentary’s production, Maloof had not yet developed around 700 rolls of Maier’s color photographs, a selection of which is now on show in ‘Vivian Maier: The Color Work’. The exhibition features Maier’s documentation of the happenings of New York and Chicago from the 1950s to the 1980s, presenting a vivid array of images brimming with color and vitality.
“Well, I suppose nothing is meant to last forever. We have to make room for other people. It’s a wheel. You get on, you have to go to the end. And then somebody has the same opportunity to go to the end and so on.” – Vivian Maier
