The small publisher CityFiles press published this month a new monograph dedicated to Vivian Maier, following an earlier release by powerHouse Books. This new work is organized in sections, and features many never- seen before photographs. Given the sheer number of photographs taken by Vivan Maier, we will probably need a few months before we know them all. But this book, edited by Richard Cahan and Michael Williams, introduces a number of new images. Here we follow Maier not only through America’s largest cities, but also during her travels in France in the early 1950s. It was a country she was already familiar with, having spent some of her childhood there with her French mother, Marie Maier.
