About the exhibition
Fondazione Forma Meravigli pays tribute to the work and creativity of Vivian Maier, the nanny-photographer who used to wander around the city camera-in-hand to depict the scenery she was surrounded by, with the exhibition “Vivian Maier. Colour”. Curated by Alessandra Mauro in collaboration with the Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York, the exhibition gathers a selection of previously unreleased colour shots by Vivian Maier – some of which have never been displayed before – depicting daily-life scenes between New York City and Chicago between the 1950s and the early 1970s. The irony, human warmth, urban landscapes and portraits of adults and kids are some of the protagonists of the shots, highlighting the author’s ability to capture reality and the true soul of the people.
