I don’t typically post links on this blog but this is just plain interesting. Vivian Meier was a Chicago street photographer from the 1950s whose work was recently “discovered” and purchased. Over 100,000 medium format negatives, and still undeveloped film remains. To this guy’s eye, John Maloof, the man who purchased this work at a furniture and antique auction, did us all a favor. I love seeing what life was like 50-60 years ago. Just cool, interesting.
