In this compelling portrait, Bruce Rice shows us street photographer Vivian Maier as a documentarian who is in turns compassionate, abrasive, and meditative—and always deeply aware of her times. Her subjects provide their own narrative. More than anything, the poems are a response to her work, which is all we have that comes directly from her. It is a deliberate challenge to the “mystery nanny” she was reduced to in much of the constructed narrative of her life. Written by a masterful poet at the height of his powers.
