Vivian Maier

A Photograph from the amazing collection of photographs
by the talented street photographer Vivian Maier. I was
told of these wonderful images and the story behind their
discovery by a friend called Tom. I have him to thank for
introducing me to the brilliant blog by John Maloof.

Vivian took thousands of photo's on the streets of Chicago
for many years. Her work remained undiscovered until
John Maloof bought the huge collection of undeveloped
film from a local auction.

John has set out to catalogue her work and slowly develop
every film in order to share her eye with the rest of the world.
Every week John adds more of his developed images on his
fantastic blog. See Here

Vivians Photographs are a historical pictorial record of 1950's
