Vivian Maier Photography in L’Isle sur la Sorgue

Contributor blog post by Aixcentric:

In 2007, John Maloof, a local historian in Chicago, came across some boxes of photos and negatives depicting Chicago in the 60’s at an auction house. Unable to get a thorough look at its contents, he took a gamble and purchased the box for around $400.

He found nothing relevant for the history book he was writing so John put them to one side.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
