Seeing Chicago

without comments

A36

The work of a great street photographer can give you a new view of a city – even if you have lived in that city your entire life. Robert Frank, William Eggleston and Henri Cartier Bresson are famous for giving us unique views of fleeting moments in New York, Mississippi and Paris.

Recently, a Chicago man came across a cardboard box full of undeveloped film at an estate sale. He is slowly developing the film and posting the images on a blog. His discovery is the work of Vivian Maier (1926-2009), a street photographer whose photographs of Chicago have never been seen until this year.  Thanks to a chance discovery, we now have a new way to view Chicago.
