    Define "print herself." She made approximately 3000 prints according to the documentary (I could be offon the number, my memory is not perfect).

    Did she go into a dark room and make the prints herself? No. Did she have prints made at a lab (like most people did), yes she did. In the film they even show some postcards she had printed. They have letters she wrote to the lab (in France) that printed those post cards, asking if the printer would be interested in making prints for her while she lived in America.

    ...

    After posting how I was going to wait for this to end up on Netflix I checked out the film's webpage and found out it was opening in my town the next day, so I went and saw it. I enjoyed it. I think I walked away with just as many questions about Vivian Maier as I went in with, but they are different questions.

    Interestingly emphatic first post there, sir_mamiya!
    I shoot digital when I have to (most of those shots end up here) and film (occasionally one of those shots ends up here) when I want to.

    But did she need to?

    I agree, which I believe is a positive aspect of the film. Given the fact the Vivian is no longer with us and the different people who remember her in different ways from different time periods I thought it appropriate that the viewer was, in many ways, left to decide for themselves who and what to believe.

    I saw this today and very much enjoyed it
    there was lots of information that i did not know about the story perviously
    Mr Maloof seemed pretty genuine and had gone to a lot of trouble to find information

    I have no idea what the other 3 people with large amounts of Vivians photos are doing with them

    sir mamiya

    did you know her personally ?

    it seems to me that very little is known about this lady
    for all i know she had her own darkroom somewhere which has yet to come to light

    likewise i do not know you and you may well be the greatest photographer the world will ever see

    Maybe I'll see the film on bluray.

    But at least it's doing two good things. It's promoting Meier's photos, which are very good. And it's raising the profile of street photography.

    I also think there are three reasons her photos still work. She had an eye for puctures, she used good cameras, she used good films.

    No Ilford, no, no.

    I just saw an exhibit from the Jeffrey Goldstein collection at a local art center: http://www.theartcenterhp.org/exhibits/past-exhibits

    These were smallish, I believe 12x12 in, darkroom prints made for exhibit. The printing was excellent. I was blown away by how sharp the prints appeared. If a Goldstein collection exhibit is nearby I recommened seeing it. Print prices were mostly $2200 but a few higher. Not sure who buys these unsigned prints at that price.
