Vivian Maier

The recently discovered work of nanny Vivian Maier has gained a foothold in the world of photography. Though never formally trained the eye of Maier was keen, sharp, and observent. The mountain of work she left behind included 3,000 prints and about 100,000 negatives; none of the work was exhibited in her life (Maier passed away in 2009) and much of the work remains undeveloped. What is for sure is that Maier saw herself as an artist and worked quietly for years and developing an oeuvre that is now being appreciated. The work has been well received by critics and collectors.

Join the Stephen Kasher Gallery in a guided tour of Maier's work lead by John Bennette. Bennett is the Art Director for South x Southwest Magazine, a known collector, curator, and lecturer, and curated the first exhibition of Vivian Maier's work in 2011 at the Hearst Tower.
