I saw another documentary about Vivian Maier last night – which I highly recommend for anyone else who is as entranced by her work as I am: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0366jd5/imagine-summer-2013-1-vivian-maier-who-took-nannys-pictures
I feel sure that if Vivian had been walking along London’s South Bank the evening before, as I was, and had stumbled across this unexpected hospital scene by the river, she would have wanted to capture it too. The lady, who just happened to be in vintage dress, was engrossed in her phone. But she looked up for a fraction of a second; and so I stole the moment. I like to think that Vivian was cheering from the sidelines.
