Peering through Vivian's camera...
Yesterday I went with friends to the opening of the "Finding Vivian Maier : Street Photographer" exhibit. While there we saw her beautiful street images from Chicago and all over the world. Such an intriguing story about her life and photography.
One of the displays had her cameras and old film cans displayed. I was explaining to my friends about the TLR Rollei and how it worked when it later dawned on me that I might be able to capture an image through her camera. So I asked my friend Bea to pose and checked, sure enough whomever set that camera up actually focused it for the wall. It was hard through the glass but I managed to snap off a few good shots. My friend Bea can now say she has had her picture made through Vivian Maier's camera!
The exhibit will be on display from Jan 8th to April 3rd at the Chicago Cultural Center.
