Vivian Maier, Street Photographer


Documentary Film: Finding Vivian Maier

This intriguing documentary shuttles from New York to France to Chicago as it traces the life story of the late Vivian Maier, a career nanny whose previously unknown cache of 100,000 photographs has earned her a posthumous reputation as one of America’s most accomplished and insightful street photographers.

The documentary will be shown at the Oriental Theater on Milwaukee’s east side on Friday, May 2.

Another view of the Calatrava from the south side. Soon the field of dwarf flowering crabs in the foreground will be blooming like mad.
