The Story

Vivian Maier took over 100,000 photographs in her lifetime, but never showed them to anyone. Now, after her death, some rank her among the best street photographers of the 20th century. This episode tells the story of the Chicago man who stumbled on her negatives at a storage locker sale, and what we are now learning about the life of this remarkable photographer.
