Vivian Maier, street photographer and nanny

Well I am back from the AUT summer workshop with Todd Hido taking up the mantle of running the whole workshop as Bruce Gilden couldn’t come. We were lucky enough to have Paul Graham drop in for a morning so all in all was quite a weekend, I will write more on the workshop soon. Todd Hido was intelligent, gracious and all round fascinating artist with great insights and a profound knowledge of photography and its practitioners. I am still processing all that I learned and going through and looking at artists that Todd mentioned that I had never heard of before. Am also researching further artists whose books were available for us to look through thanks to Harvey Benge and his extensive book collection. The first artist I was drawn to look at will never know how her work is being received and applauded as she died never having shown her work to anyone, roll upon roll she never saw herself as she never got them processed. I hope you enjoy this video as much as I did and I am excited to see more of her work becoming available for the world to enjoy.
