40 Amazing and Creative Self-Portraits by Vivian Maier

Today, the name Vivian Maier is synonymous with American street photography. But her work didn't become famous until 2009, two years after someone bid $400 on a box of negatives in Chicago.

Maier, with her twin-lens Rolleiflex camera held cautiously to her body, took more than 150,000 photos from the 1940s through the 1970s. They show street life in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and many cities around the world. But Maier also turned the lens toward herself, as seen in these interesting photographs below.
