Vivian Maier Street Photographer

Over the last year the photo community has been talking about Vivian Maier.

Maier was a nanny who, on her down time, photographed the streets of Chicago and the world from the 1950s until she passed away in 2007. Her images were purchased by John Maloof at an auction and he started scanning her negatives and processing her shot rolls of film. After posting some of her images to flickr with a question to the flickr community about what to do he received support from many who praised the images and wanted to see more.

Since then Maloof has had many shows of Maier's work and has now published a book, check out this link to order the book.  For our students the book is now on order at the LRC and should be coming in soon.
