“Well I suppose nothing is meant to last forever.”

Perhaps you’ve already heard of her, but if you haven’t, you’re in for a treat!

Vivian Maier worked as a reclusive nanny in Chicago in the 1950s-60s. Five decades later, over 100,000 negatives reveal Ms. Maier to be one of the most talented street photographers in our history. Her photographs (the few that have thus far been scanned) are uh-mazing. I’d love to see an exhibit.

There is also a blog that John Maloof  (the man in possession of all of her negatives among other things) regularly updates about her and her photographs: http://vivianmaier.blogspot.com/

Check it out!
