I saw the Vivian Maier exhibition yesterday at the Chicago Cultural Center and there were some images that just took my breath away. Her sense of composition, compassion and humor is so evident. I also learned via facebook that a group is trying to fund a documentary via kickstarter. Looks like they have a lot of support... all very exciting.

In the meantime, here are a few more images. I was thrilled to find a photograph from my own neighborhood in Evanston!
