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.

  1. Gorgeous photos! What a cool find in a storage locker! I read a story a few months ago who found some original Ansel Adams negatives at a garage sale for a few dollars. Who knows what beauty is lurking around in garages and attics, and storage lockers, across the nation!

    Happy New Year!
