Vivian Maier’s Chicago

imgresThere are two opportunities currently to see Chicago through the eyes of photographer Vivian Maier.

“Vivian Maier was born in New York City in 1926, but spent much of her life travelling to places like Egypt, Bangkok, Italy, and the American Southwest with camera in tow. In 1956 she settled in Chicago, where she remained until her death in 2009. She spent her adult life as a nanny to a series of North Shore families, and devoted her free time and money to her passion, photography.”
