On view until June 1, 2014 at Jeu de Paume, Paris: Vivian Maier: A Photographic Revelation
With one hundred and twenty black and white silver prints and color derived from the original negatives and slides as well as extracts from super-8 films she realized in the 1960s and 1970s, the exhibition at the Château de Tours by Jeu de Paume, in collaboration with the City of Tours and diChroma photography, is the largest devoted to Vivian Maier in France. This project, developed by John Maloof in collaboration with the Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York, is a first approach to the work, revealing a unique eye, poetry and humanism.
