The first definitive monograph of color photographs by American street photographer Vivian Maier.
Photographer Vivian Maier’s allure endures even though many details of her life continue to remain a mystery. Her story—the secretive nanny-photographer who became a pioneer photographer—has only been pieced together from the thousands of images she made and the handful of facts that have surfaced about her life. Vivian Maier: The Color Work is the largest and most highly curated published collection of Maier’s full-color photographs to date.
With a foreword by world-renowned photographer Joel Meyerowitz and text by curator Colin Westerbeck, this definitive volume sheds light on the nature of Maier’s color images, examining them within the context of her black-and-white work as well as the images of street photographers with whom she clearly had kinship, like Eugene Atget and Lee Friedlander. With more than 150 color photographs, most of which have never been published in book form, this collection of images deepens our understanding of Maier, as its immediacy demonstrates how keen she was to record and present her interpretation of the world around her.
美国街头摄影师 Vivian Maier 的第一部权威彩色照片专着。
摄影师 Vivian Maier 的魅力经久不衰，尽管她生活中的许多细节仍然是个谜。她的故事——这位神秘的保姆摄影师，后来成为了先锋摄影师——只是从她拍摄的数千张照片和少数关于她生活的事实中拼凑而成的。Vivian Maier: The Colour Work 是迄今为止最大和最高度策划的 Maier 全彩照片集。
由世界著名摄影师 Joel Meyerowitz 撰写前言，策展人 Colin Westerbeck 撰写文字，这本权威著作阐明了 Maier 彩色图像的本质，并在她的黑白作品以及街头图像的背景下审视了它们与她明显有亲属关系的摄影师，如尤金·阿杰特和李·弗里德兰德。150 多幅彩色照片，其中大部分从未以书籍形式出版，这组图像加深了我们对 Maier 的理解，因为它的直接性表明了她对记录和展示她对周围世界的解释的热情。
