Vivian Maier (1926-2009)

Photographer John Maloof hit the jackpot at an antique furniture auction in Chicago. He acquired 40,000 medium format negatives from photographer Vivian Maier, an obscure French street photographer. Just over a third of the film was exposed undeveloped rolls. John is busy developing and scanning the remaining film. I spoke to him and his long term plan is to possibly publish a book of her work. There is some fantastic content. Check out the link below.

BTW, Vivian shot a Rolleiflex!

Digital Outing

Headed out early this morning with my friend Danny to capture some images. We had no set plan, so we just started driving. Ended up stopping by Long Beach for a short time and then ended up in San Pedro. I had some film with me, but opted to shoot a digital body with the Zeiss 21mm f/2.8. I love this lens!
