Poznajete li vi Vivian Meyer? / Do you know Vivian Meyer?

Poznajete li vi Vivian Meier?


Ako je ne poznajete nije strašno,ni ja nisam čula za nju do danas.
Vivian je bila Dadilja u Čikagu.Niko je zaista nije poznavao, a deca koju je čuvala su kasnije izjavila da je bila odlična dadija.Nisu je nikad privatno posećivali niti zvali telefonom.I Vivian bi verovatno ostala samo to.Jedna skromna žena koja je bila povučena ali svoj posao radila sa velikom ljubavlju.
Umrla je  2007 godine u 83ćoj godini života.
Njen sugradjanin 26godišnji John Maloof je na jednoj aukciji u Čikagu tražio da nadje nešto ,dodatne informacije i ilustarcije, za delo koje je pisao o istoiji jedne četvrti u Čikagu.
Kupi 'na slepo' jednu kutiju plativši za nju 400 US$.Došavši kući kutiju je odložio u ormar.
Kad je najzad našao vremena da je razgleda,našao je u njoj ogroman broj negativa..ceo jedan Život.Kada je razvio nekoliko, shvatio je kako je ustvari otkrio riznicu jednog talentovanog fotografa i počeo je napustivši posao, da se bavi samo promocijom ove do sada nepoznate autorke.
Ja lično, iako vrlo loš fotograf po svim standardima, nadjoh u njenim slikama jednu osobu koja je toliko volela ljude ,a eto ipak živela sa njima samo kroz svoje kreacije.
Ona će verovatno kao i mnogi umetnici pre nje postati slavna,tek posle svoje smrti.
Eto sad i vi znate priču o Vivian Meier

If you don't ,don't worry,I heard about her only today.
In the winter of 2007, John Maloof, a 26-year-old Chicago realtor, stumbled upon a box of negatives at an auction house. He paid $400, hoping it might hold some vintage photos of his neighborhood. He stuffed the box in a closet. There the images sat for a couple of months, until he had time to scan a few into his computer. "Little by little I realized how good they were," he told me. In the end, he collected more than 100,000 negatives, including a few thousand rolls of film. In one of the boxes, he eventually found an envelope with the name Vivian Maier scrawled on it. He googled her name and found a Chicago Tribune obituary. She had died a few days earlier. She was 83.
Maloof learned that Vivian Maier had made her living as a nanny, first in New York City, then from the late 1950s until the late 1990s for well-to-do families in the Chicago area. A writer for Chicago magazine contacted some of the children she cared for, and it became clear that no one knew the extent of her photography. Her former charges—all now adults—recounted with great affection how she'd take them on outings to the city, always carrying her Rolleiflex. She had little patience for those who put on airs—and she did little to call attention to herself.
It is her destiny that she is about to become famous after her death,just like so many artist before her.
There you go..now you know the story of Vivian
