Revue de presse

“Maier, a nanny with a photography obsession and secretive tendencies, has an astonishing story. But it’s her quiet yet piercing images that resonate most.” (O, the Oprah Magazine)

“...the largest collection of her work to date.” (New Republic)

“Maier, a nanny with a photography obsession and secretive tendencies, has an astonishing story. But it’s her quiet yet piercing images that resonate most.” (O magazine)

“This dense new book of previously unseen photos (discovered after her death) makes a thoughtful gift for an aspiring photographer, or any fan of Garry Winogrand.” (New York magazine)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The definitive monograph of American photographer Vivian Maier, exploring the full range and brilliance of her work and the mystery of her life, written and edited by noted photography curator and writer Marvin Heiferman; featuring 250 black-and-white images, color work, and other materials never seen before; and a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman.

Vivian Maier’s story—the secretive nanny-photographer during her life who becomes a popular sensation shortly after her death—has, to date, been pieced together only from previously seen or known images she made and the handful of facts that have surfaced about her life. During her lifetime she shot more than 100,000 images, which she kept hidden from the world. In 2007, two years before her death, Chicago historic preservationist John Maloof discovered a trove of negatives, and roll upon roll of undeveloped film in a storage locker he bought at auction. They revealed a surprising and accomplished artist and a stunning body of work, which Maloof championed and brought to worldwide acclaim. 



Vivian Maier presents the most comprehensive collection and largest selection of the photographer’s work—created during the 1950s through the 1970s in New York, Chicago, and on her travels around the country—almost exclusively unpublished and including her previously unknown color work. It features images of and excerpts from Maier’s personal artifacts, memorabilia, and audiotapes, made available for the first time. This remarkable volume draws upon recently conducted interviews with people who knew Maier, which shed new light on Maier’s photographic skill and her life.

Ce livre numérique ne peut être affiché et lu sur mon ordinateur. Cela n'est possible que sur ma tablette, une 7 pouces. C'est dire que le texte (en anglais) est illisible et les photos peu visibles.

Repetitive of earlier books. Wrong color cover. Avoid. 1 novembre 2014
Par James Liu - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is my fourth Vivian Maier book, and honestly, it's kind of repetitious. It's especially repetitious of the earlier Maloof books, Vivian Maier, Street Photographer and Vivian Maier Self Portraits. There are a few later color photographs in this book, but there's not enough to justify the price.

Also, the orange cover is distracting when looking at the photographs, as it extends past the pages so it's always there, in your view. And since many of the photos are black and white, the orange edge draws your eye away. Then orange pages separating sections juxtaposed against photographs on the facing page. What was the publisher thinking?

The editorial apparatus isn't worth the price, either. There's a photograph that's obviously in the Art Institute of Chicago identified as location unknown, another along the Chicago lakefront, again, location unknown, but dated! The intro contains some biographical details, but it seems more like dirty gossip than biography for how sketchy it is. Certainly, the introduction has no insight to add about the photographs. but it does show off the erudition of the author, who quotes no lesser lights than Nelson Algren, David Riesman, and AJ Liebling.

If you don't already have any Maier books, get Maloof's Vivian Maier, Street Photographer and Cahan & Williams Vivian Maier, Out of the Shadows. They come from different collections, and they each show a very different photographer. But skip this volume.

Best book to date on a modern master 1 novembre 2014
Par Richard J Wolitski - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am obsessed with Vivian Maier's work and story. I have the other 2 books by Maloof and the 2 based on the images from the Goldstein collection. This is by far the best book to date. The pages are larger than any of the other volumes, and the quality of the images is much better than those in the other volumes. This is the first time that many of the images have appeared in print, especially the large number of color prints. The introductory essay provides a thoughtful overview of Vivian's life and places the work within its contemporary context. The only thing that disappointed me is that a number of my favorite images were not included in this volume. Even though I've seen a lot of Vivian's work over the past year or so, the images in this volume took my breath away. They are touching, funny, odd and quirky snapshots of our humanity and give us an opportunity to gaze with respect and admiration at people who we might otherwise pretend not to notice.

The only thing that I was unhappy about was the Amazon packaging. Amazon does a pretty poor job packing heavy art books for shipping. This is the 2nd book that has arrived with a damaged corner because it slipped around during shipping. Regular books don't need any extra cushioning, but larger and heavier books do.

This is my third VM book and after spending the evening going through the booksmultiple times I believe it is the best to date 28 octobre 2014

Received this book yesterday. This is my third VM book and after spending the evening going through the booksmultiple times I believe it is the best to date.

John Maloof has created yet another loving tribute to one of the best street photographers. Some of the photos have already been published, perhaps 20%, but the bulk of the photos are new to print and they are mostly all gems. If I could only own one VM book I think this would be it but I'm happy to have them all.

A wonderful selection of photos! 30 octobre 2014

Ron Greer's review is almost word-for-word what I'd intended to write. This is also my third Vivian Maier book - and although I love the other two ("Vivian Maier Street Photographer" and "Out of the Shadows"), this is my very favorite.

NOT HER BEST PHOTOS OR GREATEST MASTERPIECES! MANY BORING PHOTOS AMONG A FEW GOOD ONES! 31 octobre 2014
Par boland7214@aol.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Don't get me wrong....BUY THE BOOK!!!. Taken by itself it is "very good"....maybe 3 stars. BUT, taken relative and in comparison to Vivian Maier's "best" work, it is inferior to her best and most famous photographs. This summer 2014 I went to Goteberg, Sweden where at the city museum was a display of Vivian Maier's photos. AND THE PHOTOS AT THE MUSEUM IN SWEDEN WERE HER BEST STUFF. It seems to me that the author and finder of Vivian Maier's photos, Joh Maloof I think is his name, is "dribbling" her photos out one book at a time....and, of course, not ALL of the photos are going to be masterpieces! Thus the "inferior" and somewhat boring photos are in THIS book. I hope that eventually Mr. Maloof will STOP putting less than stellar photos and give us a BETTER BOOK with her "great" or "best" photos instead of the "side B" photos.

The above being said, should you pay almost $50 for this book? YESSSSS.....even though many of the photos are a bit boring....it's as though Vivian Maier is saying to you..."I'm going out into the city today. Wanna come along with me and see what I see?" And, that's what you will see....what she sees or saw walking around the streets of NYC or Chicago or wherever she happened to be. Will ALL of the photos be "great" or even "interesting"....nooooo.....but she's showing you what she thought might be interesting and thus she's doing us all a BIG FAVOR....taking the time to bring her camera and show us what she saw while she walked arouond. Thanks Vivian! (And Mr. Maloof also!) :o)

Added: I think that "Vivian Maier, Street Photographer" might be a better choice if this is your first of her books....cheaper and some good photographs and fewer boring ones.
