I was so excited when I came across Vivian Maier’s book recently at a shop in the Flatiron district. Isn’t it fascinating, this story? There are so many things I wonder about this photographer. Why did she take photographs? Who did she share them with? Did she care about the image after she captured it?

One of the most interesting aspects to Henri Cartier Bresson is that he had no interest in the image, it was capturing it that excited him. I think of photographers, like me, with blogs in this day and age and I wonder if she would have used this new media outlet or if she would have been drowned in all the noise?

None of this is really that important, what is always the greatest testament to a photographer is their body of work and I am happy that her archive was discovered so that I may visit these historic images from time to time and wonder about the mysterious woman that is Vivian Maier
