9780978545093: Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows

Presenting her breathtaking photographs alongside revealing interviews with those who knew her best, this volume is the first attempt to put Vivian Maier's work in context and create a moving portrait of her as an artist. Though she created more than 120,000 negatives during her lifetime, only a few were ever seen by others. Shortly after her death in 2009, the first group of her unseen photographs--gritty with humanity and filled with empathy and beauty--were shown online. What followed was a firestorm of attention, catapulting Maier from previous obscurity to being labeled as one of the masters of street photography. Her work has appeared in numerous museum exhibits and a feature-length documentary on her life and art has already been planned. Features more than 300 duotone photos printed on 105# paper with flood varnish.

Review:

"Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows, in my opinion, presents her work in exactly the correct manner" --Kenneth Tanaka, The Online Photographer

“This book is fascinating and a revelation. Not only is it beautiful and compelling and haunting, it is a life in photographs. You will never read a more definitive book about Vivian Maier than Out of the Shadows.”  —Rick Kogan

“Now the brilliant and intrepid photo reclamation and writing team of Cahan and Williams tell Maier’s deeply moving story. They conferred with everyone they could find who knew Maier and chose 300 galvanizing photographs—most unprinted, many undeveloped—from the tens of thousands she shot.”  —Booklist Starred Review

“Digging through the unprecedented treasure trove of tens of thousands of images taken by Maier, a private street photographer who never shared her work in her lifetime, Cahan and Williams have unearthed a beautiful, haunting collection of a private woman and gifted artist.”  —Publishers Weekly

“The thoughtful and, indeed, heartfelt text manages to enrich the experience of looking at her photos and enables us to see this woman not as mere curiosity but as unforgettable artist.”  —Chicago Tribune

“(Starred Review) They show that Vivian Maier was a great artist—not simply “the nanny photographer,” as some have called her.”  —Library Journal
