WHO WAS VIVIAN MAIER ???

WHO WAS VIVIAN MAIER ???  Until recently no one could answer that question.

She was a nanny roaming the streets of Chicago for 40 years with her Rolleiflex……..secretly taking photos of people. When she died she left over 120,000 negatives.

A young man, John Maloof,  bought the negatives at  an auction………paying $320 for this treasure trove……….and has now made them available for purchase.
