Back in 2007, real estate agent John Maloof stumbled upon a box of old photographs belonging to a then unknown Vivian Maier. Only until after the death of Maier did the French-American amateur photographer gain any sort of praise or attention. Further rummaging around, John Maloof would go on to acquire a second part to the collection amassing in total over 100,000 negatives and 30,000 printed photographs. With the ability to capture the right moment thanks to either luck or pure intuition, an exhibition titled Finding Vivian Maier: Chicago Street Photographer will feature the first retrospective of the photographer at the Chicago Cultural Center starting Friday, January 7.
