“MOMENT OF VIVIAN MAIER” PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION

2015-11-04

Vivian Maier is the most mysterious photographer in the history. She was nanny all throughout her life. Her photography works have been discovered coincidently after she was dead in 2009. Her story is recognized in public based on big difference between her dual status identification: mysterious nanny and eremitic artist. A very important function of photography is to spread, but Vivian Maier hided all her works in a box, just like ancient Chinese hided in the mountain. This turns photography as her personal behavior and subverts people’s traditional understanding of photography.


By deeper meaning, her life is highest level of her work. If we treat her as an unprecedented artist, and the social role that she pretended through her life, just like irony of this powered and institutionalized society. Then her independent photos are the wedge among her works of life. By this meaning, the play of this artist who hided in the crowded city is over, but her works need to be finished by diversified interpretation from us.
