Vivian Maier's Photography

Last year, I saw a program on a fantastic photographer from Chicago from the 1950's to the 1990's named Vivian Maier.  Her images were breath-taking, raw and brilliantly captured.  However, she wasn't all that well-known.

Recently, her work was discovered at an auction in Chicago and over the last three or so years, John Maloof has been revealing her works to the world.  Some of the photos haven't seen the light of day for decades; many haven't been off the rolls ever and still have yet to be developed.  But John has put her work onto a blog for the world to see and enjoy.  You can have a look at it on the side bar at any time, however, I'll also  put it here:

I hope you see the brilliance in her photos that I have.
