Finding Vivian Maier

finding vivian maierStunning documentary Finding Vivian Maier on the photographer Vivian Maier who was unknown until after her death when historian John Maloof purchased a trunk full of negatives in 2007 and discovered the beauty of her photography. Since then Maloof has attempted to use the information he found on Maier including interviews with people who hired her and had her as their nanny in order to piece together her life and attempt to figure out who the person was behind over 100,000 photographs. Finding Vivian Maier is his documentary on the search for the truth about his subject who can no longer speak for herself. I was mesmerized from start to finish. A glorious work of film making and a remarkable story of a true talent. 5 out of 5 for Finding Vivian Maier.
