Vivian Maier, Nanny and Street Photographer

From hotmonger

The remarkable street photography of Vivian Maier, nanny by profession, has been recently discovered to the delight of admiring fans. She used a Rolleiflex twin-lens reflex (TLR) camera to capture moments in the lives of the people of New York and Chicago. We’re not sure if she realized how good a street photographer she was for she left behind hundreds of undeveloped rolls. About 100,000 negatives have already been scanned, but several hundred B&W rolls and about 600 color rolls have yet to be developed.
