Worth a Look: the discovery of Vivian Maier

Vivian Maier - recently uncovered work from the Chicago streets

Vivian Maier

Out of the 30-40,000 negatives I have in the collection, about 10-15,000 negatives were still in rolls, undeveloped from the 1960’s-1970’s. I have been successfully developing these rolls.”

Recently discovered at auction, 40,000 negatives by previously unknown Chicago street photographer Vivian Maier have been making their way out online. There are some real gems in the collection. Little is known about Maier beyond an obituary published in the Chicago Tribune just days before the man who found the negatives first tried to find out information about her.
