“In 1951, Vivian moved to New York at twenty-five-years-old and worked in a sweat shop for a while until she would become a nanny for the next forty years on and off. When she had days off, she would walk the streets of Chicago or New York, most often using her Rollieflex camera, photographing everyone and everything from the well-dressed shoppers to homeless people and even her own reflection.”
Messy Nessy Chic highlights the photography of Vivian Maier, whose work was largely unseen until found at a Chicago auction by real estate agent and historical hobbyist John Maloof. Check out more of her photography here and watch the trailer for the upcoming documentary film, Finding Vivian Maier.
