Vivian Maier is considered one of the greatest street photographers of the 20th century. She was an undiscovered artist until her death, when more than 100,000 photographs, largely capturing life in Chicago’s streets and suburbs in the 1950s and 60s, were uncovered by John Maloof. Ravine Pictures filmmakers Maloof and Siskel sought to capture her artistic legacy in the documentary, Finding Vivian Maier. This is a great opportunity to learn about a recently discovered photographer who could turn out to be one of the most important photographers of our time.
