Vivian Maier (1926-2009) thrilled the world when her photographs and life story went viral after being posted online following the discovery of her work in 2007.

Born in New York City, she spent her childhood in France and returned to New York in the late 1930s. She later moved to Chicago, where she worked as a nanny for about forty years supporting herself and her lifelong passion for photography.

Maier created more than 100,000 negatives, but showed few images to anyone. Following Maier's death, champions of her photography have been managing her archives and organizing exhibitions and events across the United States and around the world.

The Cleveland Print Room is extremely proud to present the Ohio premiere of Vivian Maier's work as we celebrate the first anniversary of our opening! Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows will run until the 23rd of February.

"The Vivian Maier Mystery" screens at the Cleveland Cinematheque on January 23 at 6:45PM.
