In what is certainly a “undiscovered gem” story, Chicagoan John Maloof stumbled across a treasure trove of negatives from an unknown street photographer, Vivian Maier. While one is tempted to make comparisons to Diane Arbus (because of the Rollei connection?), the depth of Maier’s vision may be broader and deeper than Arbus. Exhibits and books are planned. See Maloof’s blog for more info including a video interview.
