Vivian Maier - A Life Uncovered

On the way home from work today, I went to the Vivian Maier exhibition, part of London's Street Photography Festival, which finishes on the 24th of July.  The show was on in the German Gymnasium (worth a look, recently refurbished) at St. Pancras.  A nanny in Chicago, Ms. Maier took photos most of her adult life. A treasure trove of her undeveloped film was found by John Maloof, in an auction lot he bought.  So, we are seeing her masterpieces, before she even saw them developed.  Incredible.  Needless to say, her photos are amazing.  The show finishes on Sunday, but there is a book due out in October.. Santa Please! 

Below are some pics, including some shots of the other exhibitor stands, which are in the German Gymnasium.









The festival is running through various spots over London.  
Even right through St. Pancras itself!
