Vivian Maier is one of the most recognized photographers of the 20th century, with both her photographic ability and her story bringing much-deserved posthumous success.

Fotografiska New York will display over 230 of Maier's photographs, making it the first major retrospective of her work to be shown in the US. Mairer's first New York museum show will be dedicated to sharing the extraordinary work of the late artist, and how she captured post-war America and the 'facade of the American dream'.
