'Finding Vivian Maier' - Trailer
Hmm.. not so sure about this documentary...
Seems to me like its just creating her as some sort of social enigma rather than focussing on her actual photographic work. Feels excessively dramatized. Either way I'll watch it for sure, so I'll reserve total judgment till then.
She's been absolutely blowing my mind. One of my biggets inspirations lately. I kinda agree with Hollygrove, but you gotta admit that it's a pretty crazy and amazing story.
I think right now only 20% of her work has been scanned; can't wait to see what the rest brings.
I just took Out of the Shadows out from the library the other day. Awesome photo book. Her work is great and her shooting style was really similar to what I've been doing for almost a year now. It's cool seeing how into it people are even though its very different from what has been the trend in street photography lately. Kind of validation in a way and a reminder not to gravitate towards the Erik Kim-esque grainy snapshot style that's becoming dominant lately.
