Discover the Amazing Street Photography of Vivian Maier...

A chance discover at a furniture and antiques auction changed John Maloof's life.

Finding a box of thousands of photographs, negatives, and undeveloped film taken by Vivian Maier, an unknown street photographer in the 1950s and 60s, has resulted in John spending his time out finding out exactly who Vivian was, how she developed her extraordinary vision, and how to introduce her amazing photos to the rest of the world.

First he started a blog (Vivian, then linked it to Flickr, and now he, with the help of two others, is working on a documentary film and book on the life and art of Vivian Maier.

Not exactly a cheap project. So they have turned to Kickstarter to find donors to help fund the project and so far they have raised $90,000.

There's plenty of incentives to donate, including getting a digital or hard copy of the completed film and a book.
