Vivian Maier was a nanny working in New York and Chicago who, unbeknownst to many, had a secret passion for photography. When she died in 2009 at age eighty-three, she left behind thousands of photographs and an incredible body of work that established her as one of the century's master street photographers. Not to be confused with John Maloof’s documentary Finding Vivian Maier released in 2014, The Vivian Maier Mystery was made for the BBC and released in 2013 and focuses more on her work as an artist, with an exploration of what her process and influences were and how they informed her work. Shooting on the street in Chicago in the 1950's and early 60's this film is packed with her extraordinary work and features interviews with movie theatre manager Jim Dempsey who observed her attending three or four screenings a month, Pamela Bannos, a photographer and senior lecturer at Northwestern, Jeffrey Goldstein, the second largest owner of her works next to John Maloof, various gallery owners and auctioneer Roger Gunderson who bought 5 storage lockers of her work only to discover a treasure trove of photos.

"The Vivian Maier Mystery gives an excellent idea of her body of work and just how uniquely talented she was."

Liam has always been drawn to the outdoors. While exploring in nature, he discovers pieces of wood which seem to have a spirit that is waiting to emerge. An avid illustrator and carver, Liam has a talent for bringing to life the character and essence within.l his art reveals itself chip by chip, first to the artist and then to the viewer.

Walking Styxx - Photographs by David Firman

Walking Styxx - a month of psychogeographic walks with a greyhound. Photographs by David Firman

Exhibit runs September 28 to October 31

Here begins a tale involving a dog, his doting father and a month of walks.
Styxx-shortened from the original Firestyxx-is a lurcher, a grehound mixed with a little bit of some other breed. But Styxx is every bit greyhound, 80 pounds of muscle bound into a graceful Art Deco form.

It's summer 2014. Styxx and I head out to distant sites,search hills to climb, prairie to sniff. And it occurs to me that I'm exploring my surroundings in a fresh way.

So we invent a project. We take a month of walks, record our findings as photographs and maps. Psychogeographic walks. Uncharted drifts guided solely by our senses. Styx, a sight hound with a keen nose, is my guide.

David has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions across Canada and internationally. His work is in numerous private collections, the National Gallery (Ottawa), Canadian Centre of Architecture (Montreal) and the Winnipeg Art Gallery.
