Vivian Maier grew up in France, immigrated to the US, spent 40 unassuming years working as a nanny, and then, during her free time, took more than 100,000 photographs of life on the Chicago streets. Discovered only in 2009, not long before her death, her photography will be on display at the Chicago Cultural Center from January to April 2011. This marks the first solo exhibition of her work. The video above, along with this dedicated blog, will introduce you to this belatedly discovered talent. Thanks to @eugenephoto for sending this along.
