Celebrated by The Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, The New York Times, American Photo, Town and Country and countless other publications, the life’s work of recently discovered street photographer Vivian Maier has captivated the world and spawned comparisons to photography’s masters including Diane Arbus, Helen Levitt, Lisette Model, Walker Evans, and Weegee among others.
Now, for the first time, Vivian Maier: Self-Portraits reveals the fullest and most intimate portrait of the artist to date, bringing us closer to the reclusive artist than ever before.
"'Self-Portraits' meets the mystery head on, collecting the many pictures Maier took of herself. They are a mix of the spontaneous and the studied, as the photographer aimed her camera at mirrors and shop windows, capturing her reflection with careful detail and composition. They are among her most accomplished pictures and may be the most revealing artifacts she left behind." -LA Times
"An unassuming Chicago baby sitter named Vivian Maier was one of the pioneers of street photography. But for 60 years, nobody knew it." -The New York Times Style Magazine
