Vi­vian Maier: The Color Work

Edmonton Journal - - BOOKS - Colin Wester­beck Harper De­sign

Re­mem­ber the Chicago mys­tery nanny whose cache of some 150,000 prints, neg­a­tives, trans­paren­cies and rolls of un­de­vel­oped film were dis­cov­ered at auc­tion af­ter her death? Her name was Vi­vian Maier, and this book brings her me­an­der­ing to life in colour. One self-por­trait says it all with a sliver of her face re­flected in a hand mirror that rests on a bunch of yel­low flow­ers on street brick, from 1975. ($90)
