Vivian Maier Photography

Can you imagine she didn't show it to anyone?!

"The photography of Vivian Maier is an apt representation of the dichotomy at the heart of a very private person. Prolific in her image taking and yet intensely secretive, she took photographs for over 40 years without ever showing them to another person, with the collection only surfacing when the unit where Maier had stored the negatives sold them for non-payment of bills in 2007. It was an electrifying discovery, featuring over 100,000 images of the Chicago and New York streets stretching from the 1950s well into the 1990s; a treasure trove of vignettes showing the quirks and banality, the ugliness and beauty of the American cityscape."
