Vivian Maier

Imagine yourself in the 1950’s, wandering around and snapping photos of the normal people you ran into on the street, documenting life through a lens. Then imagine doing that for next 20 years, taking over 40,000 photos inthat time. Well, that was the life of Vivian Maier, a street photographer who captured every day life in the most remarkable way. There’s something amazing about all of her black and white images, she captured so many amazing things and it’s really fun to see what life was like 40 to 60 years ago.

There’s a blog set up now which is starting to showcase her work. It looks like it’s being updated pretty frequently, so be sure to take a look.
