Vivian Maier - Paris Photo Agenda | Intervalles |

Vivian Maier was the archetypal self-taught  photographer with a keen sense of observation and an eye for composition. She  was born in New York in 1926, but spent part of her childhood in France before  returning to New York in 1951 when she started taking photos. In 1956, she moved  to Chicago, where she lived until her death in 2009. 


Her talent is comparable with that of the major figures of American street  photography such as Lisette Model, Helen Levitt, Diane Arbus and Garry  Winogrand. The exhibition presented at the Château de Tours by the Jeu de Paume,  in partnership with the Municipality of Tours and diChroma photography, is the  largest ever exhibition in France devoted to Vivian Maier. It includes 120 black  and white and colour gelatin silver prints from the original slides and  negatives, as well as extracts from Super 8 films she made in the 60s and  70s.
