Vivian Maier


 

(c) Vivian Maier

This story has turned up at various places around the internet this week. Vivian Maier was born in New York in 1926, and on days off work would stroll around the streets of New York taking pictures. Some 100,000+ frames of negatives have been found, many of which she has never seen printed herself. The story of how they were found, and what is happening to them can be read at the New York Times blog here.

ADDENDUM: Best place to read more about Vivian Maier is on the blog page set up by John Maloof, who seems to have acquired most of her negatives, here.

About the find, he says

I acquired Vivian’s negatives while at a furniture and antique auction. From what I know, the auction house acquired her belongings from her storage locker that was sold off due to delinquent payments.
