Vivian Maier show in Chicago

Kenneth Tanaka posted on The Online Photographer blog today a brief article about a showing of Vivian Maier's images at the Chicago History Museum.  Once again, the public is being treated to more work by this extraordinary street photographer who lived and worked as an artist in obscurity her entire life.

What is notable about this exhibit is that entire rolls of negatives are printed, jewels along with junk, to show how Maier moved through time and space with her camera.  Surprisingly few of these images are duds.
