Photography's Secret Master
Because of the popularity of the Vivian Maier Exhibit, we have resurrected this show, which originally opened on July 31, 2014 and ran through March 28, 2015.
VIVIAN MAIER 1926-2009
Visit the Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography to view thirty photographs by the mysterious photographer and nanny, Vivian Maier. Born in New York, little is known about this unusual and private woman who chose to disconnect from her own family, yet made a living by taking care of the families of others. This disconnection probably had significant influence on Maier's choice of subject matter, as she often seemed drawn to the disregarded and those on the fringes of society. This collection includes both street photography and self portraits. It is representative of the time she spent in Illinois, New York and California.
