Vivian MaierIn my spare time I am constantly looking for inspiring sources of all things design, photography and the like. Browsing one of my regular hunts I came across this amazing set of photos by a lady by the name of Vivian Maier who unfortunately passed away in 2009 at the age of 83.

Vivian Maier was a street photographer that lived and worked in Chicago as a nanny and in her spare time she carried a camera with her every day.

 

Her work was discovered at an auction in 2007, more than 100,000 negatives and undeveloped rolls of film, sold by a storage facility who were cleaning out her locker for delinquent rent. Here is a small sampling of Vivian Maier’s stunning work from the Maloof Collection, spanning from the 1950s to the 1970s. Many of the photos, if they had any information at all, only provided a year and/or city.
