Vivian Maier's photographs on view for the first time in Ohio at the Cleveland Print Room
Maier’s work was discovered in Chicago in 2007 when boxes of abandoned prints, negatives and undeveloped film were found in a storage locker.
CLEVELAND, OH.- The Cleveland Print Room presents Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows, an exhibition of photographs by Vivian Maier (1926-2009) from the Jeffrey Goldstein collection. The exhibition of posthumous silver gelatin prints puts Maier’s work in the context of her life during her creative period from the 1950s through the 1970s. This is the first time Maier’s impressive body of work and unique story is being shared in Ohio.

Maier’s work was discovered in Chicago in 2007 when boxes of abandoned prints, negatives and undeveloped film were found in a storage locker. Born in New York, Maier spent much of her youth in France. Starting in the late 1940s, she shot an average of a roll of film a day. She moved to Chicago in the mid-1950s where she spent the next 40 years working as a nanny to support her passion for photography. Maier died at the age of 83 before her work was ever publicly recognized or exhibited.

The New York Times writes, “Maier’s photographs [...] add to the history of twentieth-century street photography by summing it up with an almost encyclopedic thoroughness, veering close to just about every well-known photographer you can think of, including Weegee, Robert Frank and Richard Avedon, and then sliding off in another direction. Yet they maintain a distinctive element of calm, a clarity of composition and a gentleness characterized by a lack of sudden movement or extreme emotion.”

This exhibition is a companion to the book, Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows.
