Amazing Discovery of the Day: Vivian Maier was an unassuming French-born amateur photographer who worked as a nanny in Chicago during the 50s and 60s. Two years prior to her death in 2009, a young real-estate agent stumbled upon thousands of her negatives at an estate sale, and purchased them for $400. 26-year-old John Maloof soon realized what he had actually paid for: The life’s work of one of the greatest street photographers the world never knew.

I almost didn’t watch this. I am sooo glad I did.

What’s crazy is that this may end up being the most important discovery in the art world that happens in our lifetime. It’s simply mind-blowing, and I am tempted to show this to my Art History professors at UCLA and see what they think about getting her out there into the world.

The photos are powerful, mood-altering, and full of emotion, and we may not even have seen her best work. I am fighting the urge to head to Chicago and help him sort through them.

WATCH THIS.
