Vivian Maier. French-Born American. Photographer. Chicago. 1926-2009.

I cam across Vivian Maier’s photos in a roundabout, blogabout way. She was an amateur photographer who took thousands of photos of her neighborhoods in Chicago and New York, most of the medium-format film and slides went undiscovered until John Maloof purchased her estate at an auction a few years ago.
Since then, he’s been developing the photos and posting them to this blog.. I’m really into these photos of kids playing, but there are hundreds more, most of them have caught my eye. I’ll certainly explore her work further, post more here.

(The final photo in the series is a self-portrait).
