Vivian’s new website

Vivian Maier, 1953, New York, NY

The strange case of Vivien Maier continues. Her discoverer John Maloof has set up a new website for her work: www.vivianmaier.com. Now New York’s prestigious  Howard Greenberg gallery is representing the late photographer and she’s in good company, sharing the gallery with Eugene Atget and Alfred Stieglitz amongst others. It indicates her canonization as a Significant Photographer.

There is plenty of argument about wether she deserves this level of attention and artistic status. Her fateful story has mythical ring to it – reclusive artist has life’s work rescued in the nick of time by unknown hero. Can it be too long before a movie is made of her life, perhaps with Kate Winslet in the starring role?
