Vivian Maier: Street Photographer/Nanny

Great story of a real estate agent finding a treasure trove of film negatives by an unknown street photographer, who worked as a nanny and took photos in Chicago in the 1950’s/1960’s on her days off, and the current project of scanning and archiving the photos, which are touching, beautiful, stark, amazing, akin to Robert Frank.  I’d love to see an exhibit if they curate one in New York.
