The 8mm Films of Vivian Maier

The 8mm Films of Vivian Maier

The 8mm Films of Vivian Maier on Nowness.com

These small clips from the 1970s show a glimpse into the secret life of Chicago nanny Vivian Maier as she documented the urban life around her in her off time. The Finding Vivian Maier documentary finally debuts today at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

We’ve covered info on Maier before, but if she’s unknown to you here’s a rundown. Vivian died in 2009 at the age 83. She spent most of her life as a nanny in Chicago and had a secret passion for photography and film. She never shared it with anyone and had few friends. After winning a bid for 30,000 of Maier’s negatives in a Chicago auction house in 2007, Jon Maloof realized the importance Vivian’s work. “Little by little, I realized that the work was great,” he says. “Maier should wedge right in with the best photographers of her time, such as Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, Lisette Model and Helen Levitt.” Maloof has sent the last few years painstakingly archiving Maier’s work, putting on exhibitions around the world and filming the aforementioned documentary film.
