The Josephy Center will host one film on Thursday February 19 at 7, “Finding Vivian Maier”, a documentary film about a mysterious woman who was a nanny on the North Shore, an affluent neighborhood near Chicago. On her days off she would take to the Chicago streets and take photographs with her twin lens camera. She took time off and traveled around the world photographing in New York, Manila, Bangkok, Shanghai, Beijing, India and more. In 2007, two years before her death, a storage facility auctioned the contents that comprised more than 100,000 negatives, prints and slides that had never been seen by anyone. A Chicago historian and collector John Maloof purchased the collection and has been showing the photos in exhibits and online.

This film is a great bridge between our current exhibit: “Black & White” and our upcoming exhibit in March: “Women’s History Month”
