More Heirs of Photographer Vivian Maier Found –StarTribune

Ten distant cousins of a Chicago nanny whose gritty street photography became a posthumous sensation have been identified, potentially increasing the number of her rightful heirs […] If a judge deems the 10 beneficiaries, they could inherit profits from Maier photo sales. Three cousins were identified earlier.

Vivian Maier, a nanny who died penniless, childless, and unmarried, came to prominence a decade ago after 30,000 of her negatives were found at an estate sale and bought for $400. A legal battle ensued over ownership of the photos’ rights.
