The still unfolding legend of Vivian Maier has been one of photographic genius discovered only after a lifetime of shooting.
When the amateur photographer Vivian Maier died in 2009, she left behind more than 120,000 negatives and, promising even greater discoveries, 2,000 undeveloped rolls of film, some of which sat untouched for more than 45 years. Last year, a couple hundred of these rolls, believed to have been shot in the 1960s and 1970s, mostly in the Chicago area, were finally developed.
