I’m linking to a blog that displays the gripping work of Vivian Maier,
a street photographer from the 1950s – 1970s. Vivian’s work was discovered at an auction here in Chicago where she lived for 50 years but was originally a native to France. Her discovered work includes over 40,000 mostly medium format negatives. Born February 1, 1926 and passed away on Tuesday, April 21, 2009.
I’ve never heard of her and I should have: her photos are gripping and original. I’ve subscribed to the blog on her work created by John Maloof, who found and purchased the negatives in Chicago.
