Vivian Maier’s photography is incredible. Born in 1926 she worked as a nanny in Chicago and made photographs on the street in her spare time. Her work has remained completely undiscovered until John Maloof purchased a box of her negatives when her belongings were being cleared at an auction shortly after her death in 2009. He set about scanning the 100,000 negs and has discovered one of the 20th Century’s best street photographers.
Brings tears to my eye. Amazing.
Thank you John Maloof.
