Finding Vivian Maier

Ever heard of Vivian Maier?

I've been completely fascinated with this woman for years.

She was around, beginning in the 50's, doing what Bill Cunningham and Scott Schuman hadn't even thought of yet. To me, their work doesn't even compare to hers. Not even close.

In 2007, someone found hundreds of thousands of her undeveloped negatives at a thrift auction house in Chicago and it exposed this incredible talent of hers that nobody knew about. She was sadly no longer living at the time, and so it brought up a lot of unanswered questions about her.

Today I saw this trailer.

I cannot, cannot wait to see this film.
