Vivian Maier. Self-Portraits
Celebrated by The Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, The New York Times, American Photo, Town and Country, and countless other publications, the life's work of recently discovered street photographer Vivian Maier has captivated the world and spawned comparisons to photography's masters including Diane Arbus, Helen Levitt, Lisette Model, Walker Evans, and Weegee among others. Now, for the first time, Vivian Maier: Self-Portrait will present the fullest and most intimate portrait of the artist herself with approximately 60 never-before-seen black-and-white and color self-portraits culled from the extensive Maloof archive, the preeminent collector of the work of Vivian Maier and editor of the highly acclaimed Vivian Maier: Street Photographer. What's more, Self-Portrait presents a carefully curated selection of previously unexplored artifacts from Maier’s personal collection, including handwritten notes, film lab envelopes, and scores of actual contact sheets bearing Maier's comments and marks—bringing us closer to the reclusive artist than ever before.
