Inspiration: Newly discovered Chicago Photographer
Wow, this story inspired me. A young Chicago realtor buys a box of old negatives from an abandoned storage locker auction and discovers the work of a Chicago nanny, Vivian Maier, who took street photos for decades on her Sundays off. Discovered via landscape designer Deborah Silver's blog, Dirt Simple. John Maloof, who discovered the negatives, has a blog dedicated to Vivian Maier here, where there are many more of her photos.
