9780991541805: Eye to Eye: Photographs by Vivian Maier

Since her death in 2009, Vivian Maier has become a photographic phenomenon. Her story—thousands of photo negatives and prints found in a storage locker and sold for pennies at auction—has stirred millions around the world. Maier was a painfully private woman who now speaks powerfully through the photographs she took only for herself. This new collection offers readers a chance to follow Maier as she travels the world, including images of France, Italy, Malaysia, Yemen, Puerto Rico, and America. These eye-to-eye portraits, published for the first time, are the single constant in her lifetime of photographic work. Maier is often cast as a quirky, antisocial character, moving on the outskirts of real connection. But these photographs show something more. Printed with the latest technology, the book utilizes a modified four-color process that produces images akin to traditional silver gelatin prints. Combined with 15u stochastic screening, Maier's 96 photographs in this volume are spectacularly sharp, full-range black-and-white reproductions.

Review:

"Here they publish for the first time 100 pristine and electrifying portraits of strangers the rapturously observant Maier encountered by chance and swiftly connected with eye-to-eye."

"Anyone who appreciates photography, especially incomparable photographs, will love Eye to Eye."
