Vivian Maier, a street photographer from the 1950s - 1990s. 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 (90% of her work), thousands of prints, and countless undeveloped rolls of film.
Vivan Maier was an anonymous nanny who quietly took amazing photographs in her spare time. Then she died. Then 100,000 of her negatives were found in a storage locker. And now the web is making her famous. Google her. You won't believe the story. Or her pictures.
Vivien Maier took over 100,000 pictures, developed them and put them in a box. About 50 years later, they've been unearthed, and with it, recognition of her talent as a street photographer as possibly the most important street photographer of the 20th century.
