Note to recorder:

Not too fast please. As if it were for an audioguide in a museum.


Vivian Dorothy Maier (February 1, 1926 – April 21, 2009) was an American street photographer. Maier worked for about forty years as a nanny, mostly in Chicago, pursuing photography during her spare time. She took more than 150,000 photographs. During her lifetime, Maier's photographs were unknown and unpublished; many of her negatives were never printed.

A Chicago collector, John Maloof, acquired some of Maier's photos in 2007. In October 2009, Maloof linked his blog to a selection of Maier's photographs. Critical acclaim and interest in Maier's work quickly followed and since then, Maier's photographs have been exhibited in North America, Europe, Asia and South America while her life and work have been the subject of books and documentary films.
