by Vivian Maier
From the 1950’s to the 1990’s, Vivian Maier quietly photographed her surroundings creating hundreds of thousands of photos that she didn't tell anyone about. These images are more than snapshots, although they do have that feeling about them. Her composition is breathtaking and she truly shot everything around her from disdainful well-dressed women, to children playing, to the homeless. Her love of the city is clear in her work as is her objectivity: you see both the beauty and the ugliness that was part of her world. I’m a sucker for street photography and this collection is a real treat.
