A purchase of old film and negatives by John Maloof has turned into an amazing find of the undeveloped work of amateur photographer Vivian Maier.   Vivian recently died at 83, just before John took a second look at her images and discovered their value.  Her photos are of people and settings from various decades, and all have a beauty and a life of their own.   There is a book coming out, and several exhibits have been held so far. 

Don’t want to post any photos here, but you can see some of her work at the blog  John has created and read about her life and the discovery of her photos in this BBC article.
