Her, Vivian Maier

Cinzia Ghigliano

This is the journal of Vivian Maier seen through a very special eye – that of her camera: the Rolleyflex that Vivian brought with her all the time. Through her camera we meet the children that Vivian took care of as a nanny, common people met on the street, far away places, destinations of her many journeys, perspectives of her beloved cities, New York and Chicago. Behind every shot there is her vision of the world, that of a shy and reserved woman who kept a trunk of more than one hundred thousand photographies.

The author Cinzia Ghigliano is one of the few comic strip women in Italy. She co-works with important newspapers, such as Linus and Il corriere dei Piccoli, but she practiced with great success illustration, especially in publishing for kids, and is the winner of the Yellow Kid Al Lucca Comics, the Italian Andersen award in the scientific divulgation category, and recently the Gigante delle Langhe and Caran D’Ache awards.
