John Maloof in Chicago has been working tirelessly to scan and present online the work of street photographer Vivian Maier that he discovered and purchased at a furniture and antique auction. After editing over 100,000 negatives, the work is now being produced as a book, an exhibition and a film. You can help fund the production of this wonderful undertaking through the Kickstarter platform.
Vivian Maier’s work is a joy to see, it is a revealing window into another time as well as this eccentric and independent woman herself.
Please support John in his work and help fund this wonderful film project.
In-Public was set up in 2000 to provide a home for Street Photographers.

All the photographers featured here have been invited to show their work because they have the ability to see the unusual in the everyday and to capture the moment.
