Art and life
Vivian Maier was a woman who lived in Chicago as a nanny during the 60s who took all these amazing photographs of her world. No one around her, no one in her life knew that this was happening. What she was really doing was creating works of art.
Only after her death were these photos discovered by this guy who eventually went into the limelight for bringing her photos into the spotlight and he eventually went on to produce a documentary about her life.
Why did she take those beautiful photos with the knowledge that no one may ever see them? It wasn't for the fame, she did it for herself.
Why do I do what I do? I just want a piece of myself out there and everyone can either accept, reject or ignore. At the end of the day, I've done my bit.
What will be your Vivian Maier photograph?
