self-portrait of vivian maier, from the john maloof collection
to think vivian maier's talent and photographic work is just now being discovered is crazy. her eye as a street photographer was amazing, in my humble opinion. i can't wait to see how this all continues to unfold. and i hope one day to attend one of her exhibitions.
also, kickstarter has been collecting money to fund a feature length documentary film on vivian maier. while it's already been fully funded, they're continuing to collect for another 70 days. if you pledge a certain amount, you will receive a copy of the completed film and | or a copy of the book. i pledged. :-)
