Weekend Reflections: Vivian Maier

Vivian Maier Versailles Ecole des Beaux-Arts
Not so long ago, Halcyon  took a photo at a Vivian Maier photography exhibition in Berlin. Well, since 3 April (and until 23 April), we have an exhibition in Versailles too, namely at the Fine Arts School (which you had seen here). It's small but brilliant and just like Halcyon, last Saturday VDP had an opportunity to shoot some reflections in the works of the great street photographer that was Vivian Maier. Please visit James to see all Weekend Reflections!

Il n'y a pas si longtemps, Halcyon prenait une photo à une exposition Vivian Maier à Berlin. Eh bien, depuis le 3 (et jusqu'au 23 avril), nous avons aussi notre expo Vivian Maier à Versailles, à l'école des Beaux-Arts (que vous aviez vue ici). L'expo a beau être petite, elle est superbe et samedi dernier a donné à VDP l'occasion de prendre des photos de reflets dans les œuvres de la grande photographe de rue que fut Vivian Maier. Tous les Reflets du Weekend sont par ici !

I, too ,marveled at this relatively unknown woman's talent. I also saw a documentary about the collection, how it was found and biographical information.

Creative reflections, and very strong work by Vivian Maier.

Nicely done reflections with those great photos.

Jack said...

The reflection in the second image is quite nice, VDP.

Revrunner said...

The last few photographic exhibits I have visited didn't permit photography.:-(

Randy said...

Beautiful exhibit.

Kay said...

These are very, very nice!

Thérèse said...

Elles sont remarquables les photos de Vivian Maier mais dommage qu'elle n'ait pu les éditer ou les faire éditer elle-même, cela aurait été différent. J’espère qu'elles trouveront le chemin de Toulouse...

Her life and work is still a mystery . More than a 150.000 clichés were discovered. Incredible ! She died poor and unknown, but her photos will.remain. Great photographer.

Halcyon said...

I know you must have enjoyed it! I did too.
I found her life story so interesting. Maybe one day our work will be famous too. ;-)

Wonderful images of wonderfully nostalgic images!

José Mendonça said...

Her work is great! Would love to attend the exhibit.
It's not easy to take shots of photographs in galleries but you took good advantage of the reflections.

VP said...

Not a great fan of this kind of photography, but I like the reflections...

Sharon Anck said...

Wonderful reflections on this exhibit. I do hope I get to see some of her work in person some day.

I like the reflections here very much. It's an interesting way to showcase the exhibit for us!

Vivian Mayer's style is an inspiration to me too. I hope her exhibition comes to Australia!

Vivian Maier is one of my photography inspirations, especially people and street photography. Superb homage to the style.

Great exhibition, great reflections. Thanks for showing.

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

Brilliant work, Ciel! The reflections are amazing. Also, thank you for introducing Vivian Maier's work. I looked her up and I am glad I did. She was an amazing photographer. How sad that she didn't get to know how talented she was.
