The untold story of a nanny and hidden street photographer is finally becoming published in the biography Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows. These black and white photographs capture the intimate moments between unknowing street walkers. The mundane culture and dismal display enhances the provoked thought in each photograph.

Co-authors of the Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows book Richard Cahan and Michael Williams researched the background of the unsuspecting photographer for over a year. Between interviewing her old employers, friends and family, the authors discovered the ordinary lifestyle of the nanny. This will be the second book released about the photographer. In 2011, Vivian Maier: Street Photographer was released with excellent reviews. It is apparent Maier's true love with her work with photography.
