The definitive monograph of American photographer Vivian Maier presents the most comprehensive collection and largest selection of the photographer’s work-created during the 1950s through the 1970s in New York, Chicago, and on her travels around the country-almost exclusively unpublished and including her previously unknown color work. It features images of and excerpts from Maier’s personal artifacts, memorabilia, and audiotapes, made available for the first time. This remarkable volume draws upon recently conducted interviews with people who knew Maier, which shed new light on Maier’s photographic skill and her life.

Vivian-Maier-Street-PhotographerVivian Maier: Street Photographer

Hardcover: 136 pages
Publisher: PowerHouse Books; First Edition (November 16, 2011)

Vivian Maier is all of these things, a professional nanny, who from the 1950s until the 1990s took over 100,000 photographs worldwide-from France to New York City to Chicago and dozens of other countries-and yet showed the results to no one. The photos are amazing both for the breadth of the work and for the high quality of the humorous, moving, beautiful, and raw images of all facets of city life in America’s post-war golden age.

It wasn’t until local historian John Maloof purchased a box of Maier’s negatives from a Chicago auction house and began collecting and championing her marvelous work just a few years ago that any of it saw the light of day. Presented here for the first time in print, Vivian Maier: Street Photographer collects the best of her incredible, unseen body of work. (Order from Amazon)


Vivian-Maier-Out-of-the-ShadowsVivian Maier: Out of the Shadows

Hardcover: 288 pages
Publisher: CityFiles Press (October 16, 2012)

Authors Richard Cahan and Michael Williams present her breathtaking photographs alongside revealing interviews with those who knew her best. This book is the first attempt to put Vivian Maier’s work in context and create a moving portrait of her as an artist. Though she created more than 120,000 negatives during her lifetime, only a few were ever seen by others. Shortly after her death in 2009, the first group of her unseen photographs–gritty with humanity and filled with empathy and beauty–were shown online. What followed was a firestorm of attention, catapulting Maier from previous obscurity to being labeled as one of the masters of street photography. Her work has appeared in numerous museum exhibits and a feature-length documentary on her life and art has already been planned. Features more than 300 duotone photos printed on 105# paper with flood varnish. (Order from Amazon)


Vivian-Maier-Eye-to-EyeEye to Eye: Photographs by Vivian Maier

Hardcover: 208 pages
Publisher: CityFiles Press (July 8, 2014)

Maier was a painfully private woman who now speaks powerfully through the photographs she took only for herself. This new collection offers readers a chance to follow Maier as she travels the world, including images of France, Italy, Malaysia, Yemen, Puerto Rico, and America. These eye-to-eye portraits, published for the first time, are the single constant in her lifetime of photographic work. Maier is often cast as a quirky, antisocial character, moving on the outskirts of real connection. But these photographs show something more. Printed with the latest technology, the book utilizes a modified four-color process that produces images akin to traditional silver gelatin prints. Combined with 15u stochastic screening, Maier’s 96 photographs in this volume are spectacularly sharp, full-range black-and-white reproductions. (Order from Amazon)
