As regular readers know, I have an abiding passion for uncovering bits and pieces of sexual history that would otherwise be buried in time, in my never-ending quest to honor the people who've come before us and to revive memories of sexual diversity. Of special interest, of course, are those who -- knowingly or unknowingly -- contributed to LGBT and kink cultures.
Formerly unknown but now -- thanks to the art collector, John Maloof -- respected among Internet art/photo sites is Vivian Maier, whose 1950s street photography is finally receiving the credit it is due. Below some biographical background with links, followed by three of her works. (Visit Maloof's blog to see the collection.)
