Looking through her photographs and 1954, New York, NYwatching a few snippets of the documentary made about her (Finding Vivian Maier) I realized how fascinating her work was.Every picture was so poetically candid that it almost looked stage because the moments were so perfect. She was able to capture young, old, white, black, male, female. But most of all, she captured this special unity among the people. She found the beauty in everything. UndatedPrecious moments will not be forgotten because of her and that is why I find her so special. Along with the positive side of things, she also captured the negative. There was sadness, anger, frustration, political issues, and poverty. Yet, that is how life is. For every positive, there is a negative. And what we take for granted so often, she took advantage of portraying that to the viewer that know about her work decades later. 1953, New York, NYHer esthetic is so effortless that one might think it’s bland. But take time to really look and envision the content, we can see a person’s feelings, what they’re enjoying, and what they’re experiencing. Undated Her simple and modest hobby changed the way we look at street photography today, in that, every moment counts. Vivian Maier did that so flawlessly just by taking time to notice the small things and turned them into something important and worth cherishing.
