Imagine you are a photographer who happens upon a goldmine of 30,000 - 40,000 negatives and undeveloped rolls of film at a local auction. Now imagine developing this film in your darkroom to discover extremely high caliber Chicago street photography from the 50's and 60's.
John Maloof did just this and is still developing rolls to this day. Most of Vivian's negatives have the date and location penciled in French. He Googled her one day, only to discover her obituary printed just a few days prior.
He has been posting the photos on his Vivian Maier blog and plans to publish a book on his findings. I had such a hard time choosing my favorites. What a discovery!
