I dont think she will be remembered as an Arbus or HCB, but will stand corrected when and if she is!
    we are seeing here work now... keep in mind she was a predecessor or a contemporary of many of those we revere today as great... what would her impact have been were she known, her work exhibited, and thus honored today?

    She will become the darling of curators in the next decade, certainly in this country, and perhaps beyond. Recently learning that her work has not been cropped or manipulated, I believe that it ranks with the best of the documentary street photographers, past or present. Her wonderful sense of humor and pathos, accompanied by a keen sense of composition and selective focus, results in some truly stellar work. A vision completely different from my own, but very well executed. Bravo to Vivian Maier!

    The owner of most of her work has commissioned (through Kickstarter) a documentary and the trailer, for the film, which will be released later this year is below...

    Wow. I know the guy who at the very end says he wishes he had found the negs instead. He told me he was interviewed but never said anything about being in a movie.

    I'm shocked that Tim Roth is in a movie...
