    Unknown to the public during her lifetime, Vivian Maier’s powerful photographs have received tremendous international interest since they became known posthumously. The details of Maier’s life are scant: She was born in the Bronx, but spent most of her youth in France before returning to New York in 1951 and moving to Chicago in 1956, where she supported herself for most of life as a nanny. This striking photograph of children enjoying popsicles epitomizes Maier’s ability to capture the unguarded personalities of her subjects.
