A Land Locked Wanderer

Hello - I'm Priscilla

Just an on-line log of me, following my heart across the globe, while my feet stay firmly stranded in the very heart of the United States, waiting to follow the Creator of it all on the next adventure. One part content, one part longing for something more again.

Feel free to escape with me.

What if one of the most important street photographers of the 20th century was a 1950s children’s nanny who kept herself to herself and never showed a single one of her photographs to anyone?

Decades later in 2007, a Chicago real estate agent and historical hobbyist, John Maloof purchased a box of never-seen, never-developed film negatives of an unknown ‘amateur’ photographer for $380 at his local auction house.

 

John began developing his new collection of photographs, some 100,000 negatives in total, that had been abandoned in a storage locker in Chicago before they ended up at the auction house. It became clear these were no ordinary street snaps of 1950s & 60s Chicago and New York and so John embarked on a journey to find out who was behind the photographs and soon discovered her name: Vivien Maier.
