Quite a good video...a bit about Maier herself and a bit about the guy that found her treasure.

Wonderful story. I wonder what else they will uncover give the tip of the iceberg they have processed so far. I really wonder how these images would have been received in their day compared to now with nostalgia adding something to these images.

Here is a quick link to image search on google (https://www.google.com.au/search?q=vivian+maier&hl=en&prmd=imvnso&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=0KKrT4FmiqGIB57V3a4D&sqi=2&ved=0CGcQsAQ&biw=1920&bih=993#hl=en&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=vivian+maier&oq=vivian+maier&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_l=img.12... .0.8YELq_IcQrA&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=ec06df0291516c6d&biw=1920&bih=993)

She would have been well received if she marketed herself or was 'discovered' while alive. The quality of the work is very strong imo.
But like anything else, how many other great artists produce great work that goes un-noticed. Many many many I'd guess.
