Vivian Maier now in London

Back in January I wrote about the remarkable discovery of Vivian Maier, a Chicago nanny and amateur photographer whose archive has turned out to include some of the finest street photography of the mid-20th century.

I'm delighted to report that after a successful showing of her work at the Chicago Cultural Center, an exhibition of 48 of her prints, some of her silent films and a number of her personal possessions has now come to London.

See it this week at the German Gymnasium as part of the London Street Photography Festival and later in the month at Photofusion in Brixton. I'll be checking it out this weekend.

View her remarkable work and learn more about her here.
