    VIVIAN MAIER: A PHOTOGRAPHER’S LIFE AND AFTERLIFE

    Book ID/图书代码: 02740017C00039

    English Summary/英文概要: Who was Vivian Maier? Many people know her as the reclusive Chicago nanny who wandered the city for decades, constantly snapping photographs, which were unseen until they were discovered in a seemingly abandoned storage locker. They revealed her to be an inadvertent master of twentieth-century American street photography. Not long after, the news broke that Maier had recently died and had no surviving relatives. Soon the whole world knew about her preternatural work, shooting her to stardom almost overnight. But, as Pamela Bannos reveals in this meticulous and passionate biography, this story of the nanny savant has blinded us to Maier’s true achievements, as well as her intentions. Most important, Bannos argues, Maier was not a nanny who moonlighted as a photographer; she was a photographer who supported herself as a nanny. In Vivian Maier: A Photographer’s Life and Afterlife, Bannos contrasts Maier’s life with the mythology that strangers mostly the men who have profited from her work have created around her absence. Bannos shows that Maier was extremely conscientious about how her work was developed, printed, and cropped, even though she also made a clear choice never to display it. She places Maier’s fierce passion for privacy alongside the recent spread of her work around the world, and she explains Maier’s careful adjustments of photographic technique, while explaining how the photographs have been misconstrued or misidentified. As well, Bannos uncovers new information about Maier’s immediate family, including her difficult brother, Karl relatives that once had been thought not to exist. This authoritative and engrossing biography shows that the real story of Vivian Maier, a true visionary artist, is even more compelling than the myth.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要: Vivian Maier 是谁?许多人都知道她是一个隐居在芝加哥的保姆,几十年来一直在这座城市里游荡, 不停地拍照, 直到这些照片在一个看似废弃的储物柜里被发现。这些用禄来双反照相机记录下来的老照片,透出这位被忽略的,二十世纪美国街头摄影的随意大师。之后不久, 消息传出, Maier 最近去世了, 没有亲属。很快, 全世界都知道她的超凡的作品, 几乎一夜之间就把她打成了明星。 但是,正如作者Pamela Bannos 在这本细致而充满激情的传记中所揭示的, 这位保姆的故事,蒙蔽了我们对其真正的艺术以及她的意图的探讨。最重要的是, Bannos认为, Maier 不是一个兼职摄影师保姆;她是一个以保姆为支撑的摄影师。《Maier: 摄影师的今生和来世》,作者Bannos将Maier的生活与她的神话形成了鲜明的对比,这些人主要是那些从她的作品中获益的人。Bannos向我们展示了Maier对其街头摄影的认真,以及她的这些作品是如何被开发的,被印制的,被裁剪的,尽管她对这些作品进行了明确的筛选但却从未发表过。她将Maier对芝加哥城民风的极度热情和她近期被发掘出来的在59-60年期间环游世界时的照片归置在一起,诠释了Maier对照相技术的细致处理,同时解释了这些照片是如何被误解的或是被世人误读的。同时,Bannos还发现了关于Maier直系亲属的信息,包括她的兄弟。 这本权威而引人入胜的传记表明,Vivian Maier的真实故事,一个真正的有远见的艺术家,堪比比神话更引人注目的光影之星。(Sand

    Awards/获奖情况:"This is an excellent book that reads like a mystery novel tracing Vivian Maier’s life and work as a photographer through the photographs themselves. Bannos uses historical research and interviews as well as Maier’s photographs to string together a story of her whereabouts, interests, and evolution as a photographer. Wonderful and engrossing."--Elizabeth Currid-Halkett, author of Starstruck: The Business of Celebrity

    "Vivian Maier: A Photographer’s Life and Afterlife strives to correct and complicate what is known about the life and work of Vivian Maier. The intertwined stories of Maier’s unconventional life and the travails of those who have ’discovered’ her work make for a fascinating read. Bannos clarifies misconceptions that have proliferated around Maier’s story and offers an equally interesting look at the growth of the Maier phenomenon." --Elizabeth Fraterrigo, author of Playboy and the Making of the Good Life in Modern America

    -The Vivian Maier who emerges from the pages of this meticulously researched book is ultimately more mysterious and important a figure than the initial, and mostly inaccurate, accounts of her life and photography portrayed. The interweaving of Maier’s story and photography’s technical and cultural history contextualizes her achievements and show s a reality that is much more compelling than prior characterizations of Maier as a naive ’nanny-photographer.’ Surprisingly, Bannos’ unsentimental yet powerful examination reveals a woman who was solidly in charge of her own creativity.- --Lynne Warren, curator, Museum of Contemporary Art

    "Patiently and lucidly detailed by Pamela Bannos in her nearly forensic biography--which unties many knots and brings order to what was previously a chaotic welter of information and misinformation."--Luc Sante "Bookforum "
