She will become the darling of curators in the next decade, certainly in this country, and perhaps beyond. Recently learning that her work has not been cropped or manipulated, I believe that it ranks with the best of the documentary street photographers, past or present. Her wonderful sense of humor and pathos, accompanied by a keen sense of composition and selective focus, results in some truly stellar work. A vision completely different from my own, but very well executed. Bravo to Vivian Maier!
