I’m really enjoying the street photography of Swedish photographer Nils-Erik Larson, who shoots primarily in black and white and has a wonderful knack for being in the right place at the right time. See much more of his work over on DeviantART.

In 2007 Chicago 26-year-old real estate agent (and president of the Jefferson Park Historical Society) John Maloof walked into an auction house and placed a $380 bid on a box of 30,000 prints and negatives from an unknown photographer. Realizing the street photographs of 1950s/60s era Chicago and New York were of unusually high quality he purchased another lot of photographer’s work totaling some 100,000 photographic negatives, thousands of prints, 700 rolls of undeveloped color film, home movies, audio tape interviews, and original cameras.

Over time it became clear the photos belonged to a Chicago nanny named Vivian Maier who had photographed prolifically for nearly 40 years, but who never shared her work during her lifetime. Since the discovery Maier’s photographs have received international attention with collections touring in cities around the world as well as the publication of a book. Now, a documentary called Finding Vivian Maier directed by Maloof and Charlie Siskel is nearing completion and the trailer above is a tantalizing preview of what promises to me a fascinating film. Can’t wait.

The art of street photography has always fascinated me. It’s such a strange mixture of skill, perseverance, editing, and even bravery, yet still relies on these incredible coincidences that result in once-in-a-lifetime photographs. One great resource for street photography is iN-PUBLiC, a collective of 21 photographers including Jesse Marlow, Matt Stuart, Nick Turpin, and Nils Jorgensen among many others. They have a fantastic blog (RSS) you should subscribe to and a wonderful picture of the month gallery that goes all the way back to December 2001. Have fun!
