Does privacy exist anymore?

In 2009, Vivian Maier died lonely and alone in Chicago. Among her possessions was a treasure trove of photographs, now becoming acknowledged as the best street photography of the 20th century. Her outstanding work is shown all over the world. She would have been aghast that her privacy had been invaded.

Still is a magical realist imaginary meeting between H, a fictional hacker from London, and Maier. Set in a gallery space, it’s a funny, edgy, emotional experience: celebrating Maier’s work and exploring what we give away – knowingly and unwittingly.
