Vivian Maier - An extraordinary photographer

Self Portrait

I recently came across the extraordinary story & blog of Vivian Maier's photographs and it totally blew my mind. She died early this year and all her negatives (about 40,000) were bought by John Maloof in an auction in Chicago. Once he started scanning through all her negatives he got more & more intrigued & interested in finding out about her life. The blog is a dedication and is daily updated with her amazing medium format b&w photos of the streets of Chicago from the 50s to the 70s. Her photographs are a true inspiration to me, but it's so ironic that she'll never know that all her work is now being seen & admired by so many people.
