Coup de coeur


Thanks to my friend Pierre, I have discovered a website with fabulous, beautiful pictures from a lady called Vivian Maier. The kind of pictures that blows you away. Sweet, funny, sharp, amazing... Littéralement, un coup de coeur.

"The website was created in dedication to the photographer Vivian Maier, a street photographer from the 1950s - 1970s. Vivian's work was discovered at an auction here in Chicago where she lived for 50 years but was originally a native to France. Her discovered work includes over 40,000 mostly medium format negatives. Born February 1, 1926 and passed away on Tuesday, April 21, 2009."

John Maloof, who has acquired the pictures and has kindly set up the website to share them is a photographer as well: http://www.capturemychicago.com/people/johnmaloof
