- DirectorCharlie Siskel, John Maloof
This documentary takes as its starting point the accidental discovery by real-estate agent John Maloof of a huge cache of negatives. It was only later that he realised their importance: he had stumbled upon a wealth of stunning photographs by Vivian Maier, an unsung talent who had worked as a nanny in Chicago and New York from the 1950s to the 1990s.
Maloof’s discovery resulted in Maier’s recognition as one of the most vivid street photographers of the 20th century. Paying homage to her work as well as exploring the strange twists and turns of her life, this film is dense with images, interviews and revelations, painting a fitting and moving portrait of a true artist, who sadly only gained recognition after her death.
Discover Tuesday Introduction
The Discover Tuesday screening of Finding Vivian Maier on 5 August wil be introduced by Lorenzo Fusi, Director of Liverpool's Open Eye Gallery, who will discuss Vivian's photographic work and her practice.
