Vivian Maier: Best Photographer Of The 20th Century

173 Words1 Page
Vivian Maier is now recognized as one of the best photographers of the 20th century, but she never intended to become a famous and well-known photographer. She was a nanny who took over 100,000 photos during her free time. Maier was known to be very mysterious and secretive. In fact, if she knew about the limelight her photography has received, she'd most likely be very upset about it. She captured moments that nobody else would take pictures of. For example, the photo this crying infant below; nobody else would take a photo of that except for her. She practically captured the 20th century on film. She greatly appreciated the American society and diversity. Her photography was discovered recently in 2007 by John Maloof, in a thrift shop auction
