Following the controversy that surfaced over the summer, one of the major Vivian Maier collectors has sold his entire inventory of Vivian Maier negatives to the Stephen Bulger Gallery, in Toronto. During a recent interview, Goldstein told Hyperallergic that he spoke with an Asian buyer who was interested in purchasing his collection of Maeir negatives “for an enormous amount” of money, but Goldstein turned the buyers away, opting instead to complete a transaction with the gallery. While the amount of money paid by the gallery for the negatives remains undisclosed, Goldstein called the gallery “it’s perfect home” in part because Goldstein had collaborated with them in the past for a show of Maier’s photographs.
