Not totally photo related, not just a journal. A bit of both.

Vivian Maier, the unknown street photographer

Vivian Maier lived her life and no one knew of her fantastic photography. Upwards of 100,000 negatives of her street photography in Chicago were found in a storage unit. One third still undeveloped. No one knew who they were by. And they are spectacular. Up there with street photographers such as Gary Winogrand.

This video, by Chicago TV station WTTW showcases the story and some of her photos. Some of the photos are on display from this month through April at the Chicago Cultural Center.

If you are a photographer or an artist, you should give this a look.
