The story of American street photographer Vivian Maier (1926-2009) is an extraordinary one. While working for more than 40 years as a nanny she persued photography in her spare time, eventually taking more than 150,000 photographs of the people and architecture of American cities and the places that she visited abroad.

But during her lifetime none of her photographs were published, known or even developed. It was only by coincidence that her photographs were acquired by a number of collectors who then shared part of the collection via the internet, after which the public became interested. International exhibitions and acclaim followed rapidly.

The exhibition Vivian Maier. Una Fotografa Ritrovata (A Photographer Discovered) at Forma Meravigli in Milan presents 120 of Maier’s black and white photographs taken during the 1950s and 1960s, along with a selection of colour images taken in the 1970s and a number of Super 8 films.
