In the NOW: Vivian Maier @ FOAM

VivianMaier_Foam1Getting inspired by a photography expo: A great tip for a cold winterday. 

At the Foam museum in Amsterdam there’s an exhibition which includes the work of a female street photographer named Vivian Maier.

Her impressive work was only discovered at the end of her life. Vivian Maier was from New York and worked as a nanny. In her free time she wandered the streets of big American cities. No one that she knew actually saw her work, but she left behind an impressive body of work, consisting of 100.000 negatives. She also made countless motion pictures and audio recordings.

The exhibition at Foam contains photographic work and films from the 1950s to the 1980s. You can check out this exhibition until the 28th of January.
