This is the story of how an unsuspecting purchase uncovered the brilliant work of Vivian Maier. Vivian was a very private woman who, while she wasn't being a Nanny, was a Chicago street photographer. Her work may have never truly seen the light of day had it not been for a Chicago real estate agent who ended up purchasing her possessions, which were in an auctioned storage locker, sold after her death. Inside the box were thousands of photographs taken between the 1950s and '90s on the streets of Chicago. Vivian's photographs are quite amazing. It's quite a cool story. We are lucky that such a wealth of brilliant photos were found and can be enjoyed. Check it out, y'all. You can read more about this here. xox.
Below is a compilation of many of her photographs. Amazing.
