The woman herself – Vivien Maier – an enigmatic and secret snapper.

Her work was discovered by chance when John Maloof bought some negatives which he hoped would help in his research of his local area in Chicago.  They didn’t, but he was struck by the intimacy and empathy in the photos.  He subsequently collected the rest of her work (about 10,000 negatives) which he has archived and promoted.
