It’s not long since the world discovered the work of Vivian Maier, an unknown but brilliant amateur street photographer, whose work in the tough districts of New York and Chicago have quickly reached legendary status. I have the privilege of volunteering at the Oxfam shop in Bangor, and the added gift of sorting the incoming […]
