Vivian Maier: A Woman's Lens
October 6 - December 18, 2013
Opening reception: Sunday, October 6, 4-7 p.m.
Since the discovery of her negatives in a Chicago storage locker
in 2007, Vivian Maier (1926-2009) has garnered international
attention for her poignant street photography, very little of which she
printed during her lifetime. Don't miss this opportunity to view a rare
talent whose rich, and little-known, life story is still unfolding, and whose
photographs have made her a posthumous sensation.
Curated by WSRC Scholars Karin Rosenthal and Susan Eisenberg.
Co-sponsored by the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University
All images from the John Maloof Collection courtesy of Howard Greenberg Gallery.
