Dennis Purdy, on the Rolleusers group (yahoo) that I am on tipped me to Vivian Maier when he heard I was going to Chicago. A box of negatives (30,000) were purchased at an auction from a storage center. They buyer ended up with roughly 100,000 of her negatives. When he finally found out who she was, when he finally found a name, he found an obituary that was dated just a few days earlier than when he did his search. An exhibit opens at the Chicago Cultural Center on Friday. Do yourself a favor and watch the news piece video in the second link. http://www.suntimes.com/entertainment/2973223-421/maier-maloof-vivian-street-negatives.html http://www.wttw.com/main.taf?p=42,8,80&pid=A1hO97qcWo7ViDL_rWniVH2LakYxNa7J Daniel ... going to the exhibit. I'm lucky. I fly out the next day.
