More Vivian Maier


Self Portrait (c) Vivian Maier

Came across a video on John Maloof, the man who has bought and is scanning over 100,000 Vivian Maier negatives (thanks to Gary!). The short video tells the story of how John came into possession of the negatives (he bought them in an auction), and how he discovered what he had bought. Big kudos to Mr. Maloof for realising  the importance of what he has discovered (and I don’t mean the monetary value, although that is evidently increasing rapidly), and for doing the right thing in terms of attempting to archive this huge body of work.

You can see the video here.
