"Vivian Maier is one of those exceptionally rare things - an artist without a biography. She can't tell us why she took these photographs, or explain what or who she was influenced by so it's up to us to decide, if we want to. All we have to go on is the images she left behind. As such, Maier is a gift to critics, who I have no doubt will busy themselves defining her 'value' and what her work 'means' for quite some time to come. My advice is to find this book in your local bookshop, and spend an hour or so leafing through it. 'Street Photographer' is an exhilarating collection and a welcome reminder that greatness and fame are two very different things."
