'In Her Own Hands' is the title of the exhibition, which we can see from the 6th of June
The Foto Colectania Foundation is staging an exhibition of some of the best/known photographs by Vivian Maier, whose surprising life captured the attention of the whole world and whose photographic legacy has become a legend. In 2007, a young researcher into the history of Chicago named John Maloof bought at auction the unclaimed possessions of an unknown woman called Vivian Maier. What nobody could have imagine is that one of her cupboards contained an immense treasure trove of photographic images including 120,000 negatives, home footage and sound recordings which would become a revolutionary find for the world of photography.
The Foto Colectania Foundation is now presenting Vivian Maier. In Her Own Hands, featuring 100 black and white and colour photographs, most of which come from the Maloof files. Among the images are street scenes from New York and Chicago from 1950 to 1980.
Maier’s innovative photographic language, which is based on a discreet and silent observation of the world around her and a great ability to transmit both humour and tragedy, offer a spontaneous insight into her society and a clear and concise portrait of the urban culture of the United States.
