one woman's view into a world of creativity

A friend directed me to a pretty neat post  at Messy Nessy Chic’s blog.  It’s about a prolific photographer whose work was never discovered, yet her pictures iconically capture the era she worked in.  “…in 2007 a Chicago real estate agent and historical hobbyist, John Maloof purchased a box of never-seen, never-developed film negatives of an unknown ‘amateur’ photographer for $380 at his local auction house…”

The holy grail of never-developed film rolls that started the journey of discovery.

It turned out be the work of Vivien Maier, who never shared her photos with anyone.  Read the rest of the story on Messy Nessy Chic…
… and enjoy this clip of the documentary film they’re making about her.
