Russell Bowman Art Advisory is pleased to offer ten images by recently discovered Chicago street photographer Vivian Maier (1926 - 2009).

Obscure until her work's recent discovery in abandoned storage lockers, Vivian Maier worked as a nanny in Chicago from the mid 1950s.  Born in New York and spending part of her youth in France, Maier traveled widely in the United States, Canada, Europe, South America, Africa and Southeast Asia.  She has been the subject of commercial gallery exhibitions in Germany and Norway and media coverage from CBS, BBC, The New York Times, Time Magazine and many others.  Her first American exhibition, Vivian Maier, Street Photographer, was recently presented at the Chicago Cultural Center and a book, Vivian Maier:  Street Photographer, is available from Powerhouse Books, New York.  

The ten images are from negatives taken in Chicago and elsewhere from 1959-1971 and are printed by Chicago master gelatin silver printer, Ron Gordon.
