November 5, 2009Vivian Maier – A Blog of Gorgeous Mid-Century Photography
Purchased by John Maloof, a Chicago real estate agent, at an antique auction, the work of a previously unknown amatuer photographer Vivian Maier is finding it’s way into the blogosphere. Taken mostly during the 1950’s, the pictures are candid shots of downtown Chicago and it’s citizens, and it is great stuff.
John is slowly posting Vivian’s pictures on his blog, Vivian Maier – Her Discovered Work. Stop by and take a quick spin through the photographs he is posting. Although they aren’t of interiors, like Maynard Parker’s collection, they are very real and very stunning. The best part: John is learning from Vivian’s photographic instruction and using her techniques to take pictures of his own. Too sweet.
