Join us for a private docent-led tour of the exhibition Vivian Maier: Street Photographer with special attention given to the quiet, detached, way in which she pursued her photography. This tour will be followed by a short, piano-accompanied talk by Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra Composer-in-Residence, Abigail Richardson-Schulte, on the similarly reclusive and estranged life of composer Johannes Brahms.
Vivian Maier (1926-2009) was dubbed the “secret nanny-photographer” by the media. She always had a Rolleiflex camera around her neck, yet zealously hid the resulting photographs from others. Her work—including more than 2,000 rolls of film, 3,000 prints, and more than 100,000 negatives—remained unknown until her street and travel photography was discovered at a Chicago auction house in 2007, when the contents of one of her storage lockers was sold off to cover delinquent payments.
