    Vivian Maier – unknown photographer until after her passing

    100,000 negatives that have never been seen until now. There are amazing shots in this video. Well worth the 10 minute viewing…

    thanks for sharing this, she was a talented photographer, and b&w is an excellent media for showing detail and in many cases is superior in showing the human condition.

    This is one of the most fascinating collection of images I have ever seen.

    I am old enough that these images seem familiar.

    I Love this image:

    Thanks for posting this, really reminds me of my late partner's work who also shot great black and white street photography - this really resonated with me.
