New exhibition showcases work of 'secret' photographer Vivian Maier

Audiences will have another opportunity to view the work of Vivian Maier. The shutterbug was a nanny in Chicago’s northern suburbs. Equipped with a keen eye and a camera, Maier took tens of thousands of photographs on frequent trips into the city. She died in 2009 but thanks to the curiosity of a local man, her photos are now being discovered around the world.

Nora O’Donnell wrote about Vivian Maier’s life and work in Chicago magazine. She joined host Alison Cuddy in January to share more, and started with the discovery of thousands of Vivian’s negatives.

On Friday, April 15, a new exhibition of Vivian Maier’s photography opens at the Russell Bowman Art Advisory.
