I came across the most amazing TV feature over the weekend, the story of Vivian Maier, who is believed to be one of the first extensive street photographers. It’s a fantastic story, Vivian Maier was a nanny but had a keen interest in photography. There is no indication that she had any formal training as a photographer but as you can see she was a natural talent and always had a camera with her. Her more than 100.000 negatives were found by John Maloof in 2007 at a fleamarket and when he started scanning them, this treasure emerged. WOW! Sartorialist eat your heart out! ;-)
