Eric Kim presents a fairly in-depth look at the fascinating photographic life of Vivian Maier, ending with some lessons he’s drawn from her work.
A street photographer whose work and life I hugely admire is that of Vivian Maier. For those of you who haven’t heard her story, she worked and lived as a nanny her entire adult life– and shot street photography on the side for herself. She created incredible black and white and color work through the 1950′s all the way through the late 1990′s. She shot an incredible amount of images– that amount to over 100,000 negatives.
