Vivian Maier, evidently one of America’s more insightful street photographers, has at last been discovered. The release of every fresh image on the Web causes a sensation among the growing legion of her admirers. Ms. Maier’s streetscapes manage simultaneously to capture a redolent sense of place and the paradoxical moments that give the city its jazz, while elevating and dignifying the people in her frames – vulnerable, noble, defeated, proud, fragile, tender and often quite funny.

She is currently being honored with a one-woman show, “Finding Vivian Maier: Chicago Street Photographer,” at the Chicago Cultural Center in the Loop. Sadly, Ms. Maier wasn’t able to attend the opening. She died two years ago, at 83.

  1. I love her imaging – takes my breath away – you are transported to that time and at the same time it feels like today… a quiet reverence.
