Maier's work was discovered in 2007. There are over 100,000 negatives. Her point of view on life is quite fantastic. Some of the images capture children and domestic life while others are brilliant captures of people in interesting urban settings. More of her images and story can be seen here. Having a photographer for a husband I don't really like hanging other people's work on our walls but I must say, this is one photographer whose work I would love to have.
