    Street photography with an old Rolleiflex

    http://vivianmaier.blogspot.com/

    This vintage Vivian Maier stuff is worth looking at. She just died this year and her work was discovered in an estate sale.

    I am posting this in the Medium format section because street photography with various MF cameras is often a topic.

    Yes, the work is very good, I agree. And the Rolleiflex wasn't old for some of the time she was using it <?>.

    This is some very strong work. All those negatives still left to develop! I wouldn't be surprised to see her become a well-known and respected photographer--posthumously unfortunately.

    Many years ago a mentor of mine swore by Rolleis and C220 / 330's for street shooting. He's turn himself at right angles to the subject and turn the camera 90 degrees to the right. The subjects rarely caught on and he said he was able to grab true candids with more time for composition. "Considered Grab Shots" he called them.

    Vivian Maier's work is really wonderful stuff. Apart from great documentation of an age there are some great pieces of art there. It's always struck me as a crying shame that the arts pay so little, resulting in some amazing talent, whether it's painting, musicians..whatever, that don't attain the audience it deserves. Here's a case in point.

    Read the story in the text on the right as well. It is very interesting. I can't imagine the impact this could have on your life. 600 rolls still to process
