For the first time in Milan, an exhibition will be held dedicated to Vivian Maier, an interesting photographer with a partly mysterious life. Nanny by trade, Vivian Maier’s street and travel photography was discovered in 2007 in Chicago, and since then her true nature is being presented to the world and her photography become a big success. Always with a Roleiflex around her neck, she managed to amass more than 2,000 rolls of films, 3,000 prints and more than 100,000 negative which were shared with virtually no one in her lifetime.

Her black and white photographs-mostly from the 50s and 60s-are indelible images of the architecture and street life of Chicago and New York. She rarely took more than one frame of each image and concentrated on children, women, the elderly, and indigent. Subjects of her photos are quite diverse, ranging from important moments of her social life, to finally interesting details captured in exceptional poses. The result is a collection of breathtakingly beautiful images, which trace a profile of one of the most important contemporary street photographers. The exhibition will be open to the public until 31 January 2016 at the Forma Meravigli in Milan.
