Do you ever go to yard sales? Sometimes I do. Do you ever flip through someones forgotten stuff at an estate sale or flea market. Sometimes I do. What if you saw this photograph?
John Maloof made as he was at an auction one day. He found some old photos; and he realized they could be important.
He looked for more from the photographer. He has now accumulated over 100,000 photos, negatives, and film canisters from the until now unknown photographer, Vivian Maier. Maier may turn out to be one of the best street photographers of all time.
Eccentric, private and quirky, Vivian Maier was an amazing photographer. I am excited to see her story unfold.
What would you do?
