This documentary traces the life story of the late Vivian Maier, a mysterious nanny who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that were hidden in storage lockers and, when discovered decades later, earner her a posthumous reputation as one of America’s greatest street photographers.
In 2009 Vivian Maier’s previously undiscovered photography took the art world by storm; soon thereafter, this documentary and its careful arrangement of this beguiling narrative similarly captured the minds of many. An entertaining yet exhaustive portrait of one of America’s most reclusive artists.
