Mary Poppins



This is the most amazing thing I've seen in a while.





There are simply no words to tell how enamoured I am with her work and how moved I am by her personal story. Ever since I watched this video, I've been reading a lot about her and browing through hundreds of her photos, I'm fascinated. I have huge respect for John Maloof and the brilliant work he's done so far.

  3. I first heard about Vivian a few months ago and have been captivated by her story since. Her photos are stunning and she has an amazing ability to capture the moment. Her story has a sweet sadness to it and I can't help but be moved whenever I look at her photos.

  8. It's really fascinating. I was touched by the few photos they showed, as each one was really poignant and beautiful. And what Maloof is doing is, well, brave. It takes a big dose of courage to dive in such a way in someone else's life, it seems pretty *deep* to me ;) Thank you for sharing ;)
