Vivian Maier created more than 100,000 negatives during life. Only a few of those pictures were ever seen by others. Shortly after Maier died in April of 2009, the first large batch of her unseen photographs¿gritty with humanity and filled with empathy and beauty¿were shown on a web site. Word of the work spread quickly. ¿The frames are so spontaneous,¿ said Mary Ellen Mark, one of the most celebrated photographers of our time. ¿She is just looking at life and capturing moments that are real. So few people know how to shoot like that.¿ Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows is the first attempt to put Maier¿s work in context. Her lost photographs, when combined with interviews with those who knew the photographer best, create a remarkable portrait of the newly discovered artist.
