Vivian Maier made a living as a nanny in mid-20th century Chicago. She always had a camera with her, but it wasn’t until just before her death in 2009 that Maier’s trove of photographs – and striking talent – were discovered in a storage facility. Her intimate and revealing photographs of the streets of Chicago have been a sensation at exhibits around the world and are now being exhibited in Northern California for the first time.
