I LOVED the Vivian Maier documentary - if you are interested in street photography or recent historical views of American life, rush out and see it - but there was a question the film kept asking that I didn't understand. That was: why didn't she show her work and try to collect money and fame?
My reply was: what does that have to do with the joy and compulsions of creating meaningful art?
This article takes on the other questions the film asks, basically about whether Vivian was performing her role as a woman in society. You'd think being a nanny, an honorable profession with a long history, would answer that. But Miss Maier's journalistic interests are deemed... unladylike, and this article calls that out.
