Maloof

John Maloof, the discoverer and champion of Vivian Maier’s photography, is a photographer in his own right. A Chicago real estate agent, historian, published author and photographic researcher, he now has a website showing his own street photography. This is the loose category that Maier’s work belongs in, as well as that of Joel Meyerowitz, Gary Winogrand, Henri Cartier-Bresson … you know, the greats. Maloof’s work is not in that league but he’s trying hard and it’s worth a look. His site is johnmaloof.photoposts.org. And yes, I know this shot was not taken on the street.
