(all images from the amazing and wonderful blog of Vivian Maier's photography, where there's lots more to see)

The story behind Vivian Maier's street photography, her negatives being rediscovered by two Chicagoans, her photos being printed, and their exhibition is utterly fascinating. Even more so are her photographs, which take my breath away.
They're on view at the "Finding Vivian Maier: Chicago Street Photographer" exhibition at the Chicago Cultural Center, and well worth going to see. I went to the opening party was a few weeks ago, and I think that had the crush of people not effectively held me up with their collective density, I may have fallen into a swoon. I demand that you go see this exhibition.
