Die Entdeckung des völlig im Verborgenen entstandenen Werks der 2009 im Alter von 83 Jahren verstorbenen Vivian Maier ist eine photohistorische Sensation. Aus Frankreich stammend, verdiente Vivian Maier ihren Lebensunterhalt in den 50er und 60er Jahren als Kindermädchen in Chicago und New York. Auf eigene Rechnung und Gefahr und außerhalb jeder Öffentlichkeit führte sie eine Art Doppelleben als Street Photographer. Ihr Entdecker John Maloof legt ihr Werk in unserem Buch erstmals einer staunenden internationalen Öffentlichkeit vor. Einige der Photographien wurden kürzlich in Deutschland in der Galerie von Hilaneh von Kories in Hamburg gezeigt.

A good street photographer must be possessed of many talents: an eye for detail, light, and composition; impeccable timing; a populist or humanitarian outlook; and a tireless ability to constantly shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot and never miss a moment. It is hard enough to find these qualities in trained photographers with the benefit of schooling and mentors and a community of fellow artists and aficionados supporting and rewarding their efforts. It is incredibly rare to find it in someone with no formal training and no network of peers. Yet Vivian Maier is all of these things, a professional nanny, who from the 1950s until the 1990s took over 100,000 photographs worldwide—from France to New York City to Chicago and dozens of other countries—and yet showed the results to no one. The photos are amazing both for the breadth of the work and for the high quality of the humorous, moving, beautiful, and raw images of all facets of city life in America’s post-war golden age. It wasn’t until local historian John Maloof purchased a box of Maier’s negatives from a Chicago auction house and began collecting and championing her marvelous work just a few years ago that any of it saw the light of day. Presented here for the first time in print, Vivian Maier: Street Photographer collects the best of her incredible, unseen body of work.

Many know her as the reclusive Chicago nanny who wandered the city for decades, constantly snapping photographs, which were unseen until they were discovered in a seemingly abandoned storage locker. When the news broke that Maier had recently died and had no surviving relatives, Maier shot to stardom almost overnight. Bannos contrasts Maier's life has been created, mostly by the men who have profited from her work. Maier was extremely conscientious about how her work was developed, printed, and cropped, even though she also made a clear choice never to display it.

The first definitive monograph of color photographs by American street photographer Vivian Maier. Photographer Vivian Maier’s allure endures even though many details of her life continue to remain a mystery. Her story—the secretive nanny-photographer who became a pioneer photographer—has only been pieced together from the thousands of images she made and the handful of facts that have surfaced about her life. Vivian Maier: The Color Work is the largest and most highly curated published collection of Maier’s full-color photographs to date. With a foreword by world-renowned photographer Joel Meyerowitz and text by curator Colin Westerbeck, this definitive volume sheds light on the nature of Maier’s color images, examining them within the context of her black-and-white work as well as the images of street photographers with whom she clearly had kinship, like Eugene Atget and Lee Friedlander. With more than 150 color photographs, most of which have never been published in book form, this collection of images deepens our understanding of Maier, as its immediacy demonstrates how keen she was to record and present her interpretation of the world around her.

"Ann Marks is the definitive expert on Vivian Maier. Where our documentary leaves off, she picks up. Through her meticulously organized and exhaustive research, Marks paints a complete historical profile of the photographer." -John Maloof, Director & Producer, Academy Award Nominated Film, Finding Vivian Maier Author Ann Marks unravels the mysteries surrounding the life of Vivian Maier, the nanny who lived secretly as a world-class photographer. The only person in the world granted access to 140,000 photographs, home movies and tape recordings, Marks writes the definitive biography, placing the photographer's work in the context of her life experiences and persona. Based on clues found in pictures, genealogical records and interviews with those who knew the photographer during each stage of her life, the biography is rigorously researched and complete. Unlike typical academic prose, Marks' treatment is clear, engaging, and relatable, with a narrative that unfolds like a bestseller. Revelations include a traumatic New York childhood with a family at such odds, its ten members were buried in nine different cemeteries. An emotionally damaged Maier overcame early constraints through fortitude, intellect, and immense creative resources, to live an independent, fulfilling life on her own terms. Vivian Maier Developed relates the arc of the photographer's life to her body of work, illustrated with over 500 images, both favorites and unseen, offering an inspiring tale of a socially conscious, uniquely complex and highly talented woman.

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Kunst - Fotografie und Film, Note: 2,0, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im Sommer 2007 ersteigerte der Stadthistoriker John Maloof eine Kiste mit 30000 Negativen, da er frühere Aufnahmen von Chicago und Umgebung suchte. Was er jedoch durch Zufall fand, sollte eine Sensation werden. Nach ersten Sichtungen erstellte er einen Blog mit den Aufnahmen und verlinkte diesen mit einem Fotografie-Forum auf Flickr, um professionelle Meinungen zu bekommen. Hunderte Reaktionen innerhalb kürzester Zeit waren nur der Anfang der weltweiten Faszination für das geheime Genie des Kindermädchens Vivian Maier. Über die eigenwillige Einzelgängerin ist bis heute nicht viel bekannt, doch die faszinierenden Fotografien von Menschen auf den Straßen Chicagos und New Yorks schafften es in zahlreiche bekannte Museen und Galerien. Ein Buch mit einigen ihrer Aufnahmen hat ihre Arbeiten einem noch größeren Publikum bekannt gemacht und die Dokumentation „Finding Vivian Maier“ wurde erst vor wenigen Wochen vorgeführt. Die Straßenfotografie stellt ein interessantes Genre in der Geschichte- und Theorie der Fotografie dar. Der faszinierendste Aspekt besteht darin, dass Aufnahmen von alltäglichen Situationen an realen Orten gemacht werden und dem Betrachter erst auffällig erscheinen, sobald er einen Abzug davon anschaut. „In their spontaneous and often subconscious reaction to the fecundity of public life, street photographers elevate the commonplace and familiar into something mythical and even heroic.“ Walter Benjamin geht in seiner Arbeit Kleine Geschichte der Photographie von 1931 sogar noch einen Schritt weiter und erklärt, dass die Fotografie mit ihren Hilfsmitteln, wie den Vergrößerungen und Zeitlupen, dem Betrachter einige unbewusste optische Aspekte erschließt. „Von diesem Optisch-Unbewußten erfährt er erst durch sie, wie von dem Triebhaft-Unbewussten durch die Psychoanalyse.“ Ziel der Bachelorarbeit wird es sein, eine Analogie zwischen dem Straßenfotografen und dem Psychoanalytiker herzustellen und zu versuchen, aufgenommene und damit bewusst gemachte Motive mit dem Übergang vom Unbewussten zum Bewussten in der Psychoanalyse zu erklären. Texte wie Das optisch Unbewusste von Rosalind Krauss und Theorien von Sigmund Freud über unbewusste Inhalte, die sich zu Träumen entwickeln und damit über das Vorbewusste das Bewusstsein erreichen, werden dabei als Grundlage dienen.
