Exhibition VIVIAN MAIER „In her own hands”

Vivian Maier was an American street photographer оf Austro-Hungarian origin on the side of her father, Charles von Maier, and French on the side of her mother, Maria aussaud.
She photographed street scenes, and mainly the working-class districts where she came into contact with life; portrait after portrait of strangers and people with whom she
identified and gave a split second of eternity as her gaze briefly met theirs; a gesture, an expression, a situation; the grace of small things within reach.
Vivian Maier also photographed the world of children, a universe that had been her own for so long. She worked as a children’s nanny in New York and then Chicago from the early 1950s to the 1990s. For her, the world of children is a world of freedom where time no longer exists; forms, rhythms, materials, like objects found on her long walks; in black and white, and then in colour from the 1960s onwards, adding a variation the musicality of colours - and playing on its attributes.
Another important part of her work is her search for identity through self-portraiture. Among Vivian Meyer's works there are many such portraits in different variations and types  Masters of Photography – Vivian Maier “in her own hands” is organized in partnership with Sofia Municipality and it can be seen in Sofia City Art Gallery.
