When she died in 2009 at the age of 83, she left behind thousands of photographs and undeveloped rolls of film that were discovered by several collectors at a Chicago auction house. Maier’s incredible body of work now lives on and establishes her as one of the century’s master street photographers. “The Vivian Maier Mystery” uncovers the story behind the woman behind the camera.
