Beautiful Black & White Photos of '50s New York
Vivian Maier is a superb photographer who lived in New York during the 1950s and 60s. During that time, she took thousands of photos documenting life in New York. Unfortunately, her works were left unrecognized for their raw beauty until two years after her death, in 2011, when a collection of them was published. Her photos have a visceral honesty that somehow unmasks this period of time in a beautiful way.
