If you watch anything this Summer make sure you see this. She was a nanny her whole life and photographed people and places for her own pleasure after her death negatives were found a book was published and a documentary that has been entered in film festivals and the world now knows about her brilliant work. I wonder if she would be happy. I hope so.
There are two really great films about Vivian Maier. You should definitely see the BBC documentary. http://www.vivianmaiermysterymovie.com
