Product description

Review

"This book is fascinating and a revelation. Not only is it beautiful and compelling and haunting, it is a life in photographs. You will never read a more definitive book about Vivian Maier than Out of the Shadows." -- Rick Kogan "Now the brilliant and intrepid photo reclamation and writing team of Cahan and Williams tell Maiers deeply moving story. They conferred with everyone they could find who knew Maier and chose 300 galvanising photographs -- most unprinted, many undeveloped -- from the tens of thousands she shot." -- Booklist Starred Review "Digging through the unprecedented treasure trove of tens of thousands of images taken by Maier, a private street photographer who never shared her work in her lifetime, Cahan and Williams have unearthed a beautiful, haunting collection of a private woman and gifted artist." -- Publishers Weekly "The thoughtful and, indeed, heartfelt text manages to enrich the experience of looking at her photos and enables us to see this woman not as mere curiosity but as unforgettable artist." -- Chicago Tribune "(Starred Review) They show that Vivian Maier was a great artist -- not simply "the nanny photographer", as some have called her." -- Library Journal
