A Newly Discovered Street Photographer
Published on September 18, 2011 by Sara Foss

A recent issue of Mother Jones (which I just finished reading) featured an interesting article on a nanny named Vivian Maier, who shot over 100,000 photographs of men, women and children in Chicago.

Maier never exhibited her work, which was discovered four years ago by a Chicago real estate developer who bought a box of negatives at an estate sale, "hoping it might hold some vintage photos of his neighborhood." Impressed by the quality of Maier's photography, the real estate developer began researching Maier and tryng to bring more attention to her work. Over at Mother Jones, there's an article about Maier and a gallery of her work that is well worth checking out.
