Update: There is a now a short 10-minute video documentary over at Chicago Tonight
Today I received a Tweet from @funkerpucki. It was in German and said something along the lines of check this out together with a link. I get quite a few of those. I'm usually hesitant clicking them, especially if they are shortened and I don't know where they go.
I'm more than glad I clicked the link this time.
This is about Vivian Maier, a street photographer who was discovered in 2007, two years before she died. I can't believe I haven't heard about her until now.
From the few pictures I have seen, this is a sensational discovery. Her sense of space, geometry, timing, situation and her storytelling areso captivating, it's hard not to fall in love with her photography.
I love her photography and I want to see more of it. I also want to know more about how her work was discovered. This is a wonderful story.
If you follow me, you know that I'm careful about what causes I publicly support, but this is clearly one that should get the funding to continue working.
I just did.
