An ordinary woman with extraordinary vision

Vivian Maier lived an ordinary life as a nanny in the Chicago area, frequently seen carrying a camera and taking photographs. After she died, the remains of her life ended up in an auction. Hundreds of undeveloped rolls of films were purchased in bulk, later developed, scanned, and posted online by the buyer. Her art is a look into a time past, it's at once personal and anonymous. Her subjects are mostly empty streets, random passersby, and sometimes herself. This documentary is great for fans of photography, vintage style, and slice of life stories.
