Schön! magazine appreciates and embraces interesting stories about fascinating people and subjects.
For the fourteenth issue, we dedicate a feature on Vivian Maier – the New York street photographer who worked as a nanny in Chicago. She kept her artistic talent private until a historian found her archive of pictures in 2007 – mostly undeveloped – and released them into the world by putting up the photographs in his blog.
She died in 2009, but became a sensation. Her images are emotional, monumental and intimate: they capture a small part of reality and have a beautiful aspect of timelessness.
Read more about this incredible story in the fourteenth issue of Schön! magazine.
