The gritty NY and Chicago photography of Vivian Maier honoured in London exhibition

Living a normal life by day, Vivian Maier used her spare time to capture gritty photography from the streets of Chicago and New York. The stunning photographs were only properly realised after her death and are currently on display at a special exhibition at London’s Beetles + Huxley gallery.

Armed with a trusty Rolleiflex camera, Maier wonderfully documented the delights of city life and the many personalities filling the streets. The black and white film exposes both the poor and the rich, the young and the old, getting right to the heart of both cities and American history. Take a sneak peek at some of the work that is on display at the exhibition, running from 4th August – 5th September…
