About a month ago I went to Steven Kasher Gallery in Chelsea, NY to go see an art collector, Mr. John Bennette, talk about Vivian Maier's work. It was an educational experience but there were so many questions I had that couldn't be answered because Vivian passed away in 2009.
Her photos are beautiful and are taken in a photojournalist style. This style is my favorite because one's true expression is captured. I have read reviews about Ms. Maier's work and the reviewers rank Vivian up there with Diane Arbus. I wonder how that would have changed her life if she was alive to learn that people truly admire her vision?
In any case, I thought to let you know that Steven Kasher Gallery will be exhibiting Vivian Maier's photos again. The opening is April 12th from 6-8pm.
