Quite possibly Chicago’s first-ever street photographer, a woman no less, a very mysterious sounding Vivian Maier. I saw a mention of her on Simple Lovely and new I had to learn more. After acquiring Vivian’s negatives, John Maloof has been documenting her extensive work over at his blog. It’s fascinating to me to that John identifies with her work so completely that he’s effectively carrying on her legacy. It’s as if he’s assumed her persona in a way, enlivening it via the internet. With good reason too, there’s just so much humanity in her work and it’s still just as relevant now as it was when she was shooting it 40 years ago.
