“[Pamela Bannos‘s Vivian Maier: A Photographer’s Life and Afterlife] braids together three strands: a brisk, rather generic history of American photography; a biography of Maier; and a withering account of how the artist has been represented since her death. ‘My goal was always to recognize and give Maier agency within her own story,’ Bannos writes. She tries to dislodge the portrayal of Maier as a mysterious, freakish figure, and to see a person where others have seen mostly pathology: her hoarding and possible paranoia.”
