“VIVIAN MAIER: The Greatest Photographer of the 20th Century?” webinar via NY Adventure Club!
The life, career, and truly unbelievable story of American photographer VIVIAN MAIER (1926-2009) gives truth to the adage that “truth is stranger than fiction.”
How else to describe how a woman with no formal artistic training could take over 100,000 photographs in her lifetime, hardly develop or print any of them, die unknown and unmourned—and then, in the quirkiest of fates, have her works accidentally discovered posthumously by a young photographer, who brings them to public exposure and subsequent acclaim, fame and renown?
So join New York Adventure Club and pop culture historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) as we explore the life and career of Maier, and how her esteemed body of photographic works measures up to some of the greatest photographers of the 20th Century!
