Photographer Vivian Maier went widely unrecognized during her lifetime for the incredible photos she took during the 1950"s. She wandered the streets of New York collecting everyday moments on film and capturing the very essence of urban life in her time period. But it wasn"t until 2011, when a box of her negatives were found in a thrift auction house, that the beauty of her work was truly appreciated. Now, Vivian"s photos are critically acclaimed, and when you see them and are immediately transported to another era, you"ll know exactly why.
Vivian"s work truly shows us how good photography can capture the heart and soul of a person or place. Check out the official Vivian Maier websitehere!
The negatives for these photos remained in storage and unknown for over six decades.
