Vivian Maier – her photo subjects seem to feel so comfortable with her around

Continuing our look at Vivian Maier, here are some further photos from her amazing collection of work. Mainly shot in New York, LA and Chicago where she also worked as a nanny, there are also many photographs where you see Vivian herself in the photo. It seems that documenting street life was very easy and it appears that people felt very comfortable around her. From the photos I have seen of Vivian Maier, she dressed and presented herself very well when carrying a camera; which may have helped with people feeling so comfortable and unthreatened towards her and her camera. I wonder how she really was?
