70 South Gallery joins premier galleries from around the world that have hosted the work of Vivian Maier, in what is a collection that perhaps she never imagined anyone would actually view. Maier had amassed more than 100,00 negatives of images she captured on the streets of New York City and Chicago, and it wasn’t until after she passed that the images she tucked away in an old storage unit were found.

In collaboration with the Howard Greenberg Gallery of NYC and the John Maloof estate, this exhibition is a must see for anyone that is interested in photography, a historical reference of our lives or the emotional context of our humanity. From art collectors to casual photography fans, all will be inspired by an artist who is critically acclaimed as one of the best 20th century street photographers. Maier, who struggled through life and was ultimately saved by the three children she nannied earlier in life, documented the world around her by taking photos over the course of five decades.

The works will include seminal works from her street photography and self-portraits. The exhibit is a wondrous collection of silver gelatin prints, each of which will only be printed in a complete and limited edition of 15.

Through Her Lens puts the viewer squarely to where Vivian’s eye found something on which to focus.
