I absolutely loved Finding Vivian Maier, one of my favorite docs of all time. It introduced me to the should-have-been-iconic work of Maier, a reclusive nanny who secretly shot at least 150,000 images in her life, only to never even develop most of them before dying penniless.

Now that her black-and-white work is so widely known, New York Magazine is focusing on her color stuff — and it's genius as well. She had an incredible eye, even if her prolific output is now being curated by the lucky stiff who bought her negatives for pennies on the frame. Check it out here.
