Vivian Maier: A Photographer’s Life and Afterlife

Northwestern University professor Pamela Bannos discusses her groundbreaking biography, Vivian Maier: A Photographer’s Life and Afterlife. Bannos’ richly detailed and meticulously researched study contrasts Maier’s life with the mythology that strangers—mostly the men who have profited from her work—have created around her absence. The much-promulgated myth of Maier as a “nanny savant” has eclipsed her true achievements, skills, and intentions. She was not a nanny who moonlighted as a photographer; she was a photographer who supported herself as a nanny. In her authoritative and engrossing biography, Bannos uncovers the real story of Vivian Maier and reveals her to be a true visionary artist.. A book signing follows the presentation. $10 at the door.
