    Some photographers love to shoot but have no idea what to do with the images afterwards. Developing film takes little space and is easy to do.. Printing takes equipment space and a lot of training. Or a lot of money .. Its hard for us now to understand how limited a photographers options were in the 50s and 60s,, and even in the 70s. Especially for a woman photographer with no formal training,,

    Thanks for suggesting this film; interesting to see the obsession of two different people. Obviously Vivian and her outstanding photographs, and John the collector whose life she's seem to take over. Wonder what he was up too before he bought that trunk of stuff.
    Just spent a bunch of time looking at her (John's) site again. Check it out if you have not done yet. The B+W Rollie work from New York and Chicago is really strong, and her self-portraits anticapate Lee Freidlander's of ten years later. Plus I love the fact that she has the big old leather case around the Rolli-flex (and pretty much the same expression in each one).
    Also check out the contact sheets; she was very economical in her shooting (and John has a good eye for choosing images no matter people might think about the handling of her situation).

      I wonder about this as well. Her lack of following through. It's as if the thrill of capturing the moment was enough. Clearly she knew she captured it and didn't really need the validation. No "chimping" back then. I am more intrigued by her process than ever after seeing this.

      The later years of her story were quite troubling and sad. Living in Chicago and going to the Art Institute, she must have been aware of what Calahan and Siskind were doing (just a guess as there are echos of those two also). Seems like if she was healthy, her work would have been known earlier. Love to see how she would have organized her portfolios or books, which I think is what makes a true documentary project out of a collection of interesting photos.

    I started looking for a RolleiFlex TLR camera.. Then I realized,, all I have to do is put a waist level viewfinder on my Nikon F4 or one of my Bronicas. ..

    I don't have much to say about the film. I really enjoyed the it and the Q&A afterwards. It is sad that she started to become nuts, but her photos are interesting. I like how film had some humor. It was an inspiring film that I went out to Little Tokyo the next day to photograph.

    I really enjoyed this documentary. Such an incredible talent and complex person she was. Maybe if we do another film event we can plan in advance to meet up after and discuss? That would have been fun.

    March 30, 2014

    • Chris F.

      That's a possibility,, On this one there just wasn't enough time to plan,,

      If any other films are at this theater, the wine bar/lounge right by the theater would be a great place to meet and has plenty of seating. I live much closer to to Arclight Hollywood and would be happy to find a spot to meet after if they have a film of interest. Just let me know.

    I like that idea

    Front row seats were almost laughably bad

    Great documentary! The more we learn about her the more fascinating her work becomes. Hats off to Maloof and the fine art printer who have brought us one of the great unknown street photographers.

    March 30, 2014

  • Chris F.

    As for the Atlantic,,,, what the hell do they know about photography? They also made a big deal over the fact that the prints wernt done by Vivian....the truth is ,, most photographers don't do their own printing,,,, they have a lab or a printer working for them.. Photographers as a rule hate being stuck on the darkroom and would rather be shooting.... John Sexton and Alan Ross among others did Ansel Adams printing.... Shooting is one skill set,, printing is another ... Very few are good at both,, Adams printed his earlier work,, but he was not a good printer..

    Yes! I thought the movie was really intersting and I think her work is great. I saw the exhibit of her work on a gallery on La Brea I think in the fall, which is part of what interested me. The discussion was interesting as well. I appreciate your listing this because otherwise I would not have known about it and it was a really interesting event. On the down side, I did not manage to find anyone else in the meetup -- parking was a mess etc. Sitting in the front row also kind of sucked. I would never get a front row seat at this theater again, it was too far up.

      Parking is always a mess, On the plus side, Parking was free. And those were very comfortable seats . I picked my seats way in the back. .

      This was never intended as a " Meet" kind of meetup..

      March 30, 2014

  • Chris F.

    I have been trying hard to explain the difference between real street photography and a lot of the BS you see trying to pass itself off as street photography (on and off of Meetup). . This film does a better job than I could have.
    I hope you all enjoyed this as much as I did .. She was the real deal..

      There was an article in the Atlantic that basically said she was just a hobbyist photographer, Maloof was good at marketing her, and the interest in her was primarily because of her story rather than her wrok. Which I thought was total b.s. They did have a point about the fact that she did not select which works to print, he did. But they seemed to think it was practically an accident that she had so many great photos, just from the sheer number she took. Um, I don't think so....

      March 30, 2014

  • Chris F.

    SOOOO! any comments on the film or her work?

    March 30, 2014

  • Chris F.

    If you all enjoyed this and found it worth doing I will schedule occasional select movie nights ,, Let me know if this is something you want to do..
    Yeah right,, I'm gonna do it anyway,,,

    Tonight's sold-out.
    I have an extra ticket available. It's a "senior" so you have to at least look like a young senior... like me! (You can hunch-over a little if necessary...). I'll try to be in lobby about 7:15 or so.
