How many other Vivian Maiers are still out there undiscovered?” -Blake Andrews in “The Flame of Recognition”

Vivian Maier (previously) continues to intrigue. John Maloof’s thread on Flickr’s Hardcore Street Photography has uncovered some hidden details (Maier was likely a Jewish refugee from France) and some color photography found at the same auction. Most interesting in the discussion, Blake Andrews wonders aloud how many other Vivian Maiers are out there waiting to be discovered, touching on the importance of gatekeepers and discovers who champion unknown photographers’ work.
