The discovered photography of Vivian Maier


A friend of mine passed me this blog the other day and ever since I have had it open in my browser, going from work to sneeking peeks at the photography from Vivian, taken during the 1950's to 1990's...The story about this unknown talent is truly remarkable. I encourage you to take some time out of your day and have a look at her photographs. They are incredible and moving photos taken of life in Chicago.

Her photos were discovered not long ago by one Lucky person through an antiques auction, "Vivian's work was discovered at an auction here in Chicago where she resided most of her life. Her discovered work includes over 100,000 mostly medium format negatives, thousands of prints, and countless undeveloped rolls of film."

I warn you, if you like black and white photography then...you will love this!
