In 2007, a Chicago historian named John Maloof purchased a cache of negatives at an auction house as research materials for a local history book he was working on. Upon developing them, Maloof discovered they were a spectacular collection of exceptional pictures taken by a completely unknown and highly private photographer named Vivian Maier.
Since then, tens of thousands of her pictures have been rediscovered to reveal an amazingly talented photographer who documented the streets and lives of Chicago. This book contains a select collection of those pictures. Vivian Maier passed away in 2009.
(above & below) Vivian Maier also enjoyed taking pictures of herself, often via mirrors and reflective surfaces.
