Finding Vivian Maier

Vivian Maier

A mysterious nanny, who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that were hidden in storage lockers and discovered decades later, is now considered among the 20th century’s greatest photographers. Maier’s strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never before seen photographs, films and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her. The documentary, Finding Vivian Maier, is playing through May 1 at the Belcourt, Nashville’s non-profit art-house theater.

Here’s a good Nashville Sceneem story about the film, and the amazing story of the discovery of her work.
