Vivian Maier - Forget what you Think you Know

Forget what you think you know about the ‘nanny photography’, Vivian Maier.  This new book is well researched and sets asides all the myths and untruths about this amazing photographer.  

- She was a hoarder which only came out later in life

- Hoarding included her photography - she was a complete unknown because she hoarded her photography

- Because she collected all sorts of things she had huge storage bills which she neglected to pay and that’s why her stuff was seen by the outside world

- She was Phil Donahue’s nanny for awhile

- Rarely did she print her own pictures - many rolls were left undeveloped

- Retrospective psychological analysis ( always a bit of a reach) suggests she also had a personality disorder
