Could Vivian Maier, an Unknown Photographer, Be a Master? (Video)
Maier was discovered by Chicagoan John Maloof while he was searching for photographs of Chicagoís Northwest Side for his new book, according to a report by Chicago PBS station, WTTW. At an antiques auction, he bought a box of negatives that belonged to this obscure woman, acquired by the auction house from her storage locker that had overdue payments. When Maloof scanned the negatives, he was astonished to see shots that captured scenes from the streets of mid-twentieth century Chicago in all its essence.
