English version of  Vivian Maier révélée, published by delpire & co.

Without the unlikely discovery of her photographs at an auction in 2007, Vivian Maier’s work would never have been known.

An extraordinary personality, both nanny and photographer (New York, 1926 – Chicago, 2009), she produced a considerable body of work of over 140,000 images, never shown during her lifetime. A fine observer of her time, she was able to grasp with acuity the universality of the human condition. A singular figure of the twentieth century, she fascinates beyond photography enthusiasts.

This biography, illustrated with more than 400 photographs and unpublished documents, the result of six years of research, finally unveils the life of Vivian Maier, a secret and solitary character. The author, Ann Marks, reveals to us the frailties and strengths of a free, feminist and committed woman, carried by a saving sense of humor.

But who was Vivian Maier, really?
