Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows
by Richard Cahan and Michael Williams
A splendid celebration of Vivian Maier's deeply human photography. Hailed as a "humanist in the best tradition" by Mary Ellen Mark, Maier produced works of tremendous emotional power and scope. Showing human beings in some of the most touching life moments, these works capture instants of joy, love, despair and pain, stating once more our frail condition as human beings, subjected to illness, poverty, imprisonment, suffering, yet somehow strong in the bonds of friendship, love, family, and carried forward by our hopes and moral strength. An amateur photographer from the working class, Vivian Maier (1926-2009) never shared the photographs she incessantly took since her childhood, although they instantly became popular when they were discovered, finally being the subject of exhibitions as those of a professional photographer would have been. Her art has touched an amazingly vast audience, thrilled by the insight given by these images into the unknown lives of a thousand people. This volume adds to the magnificent images a biographical text on the artist, taking the reader into the intriguing and awe-inspiring path of the working-class woman whose photographs touched the world. 287 pages. 9.5 x 9.25 inches.
