From the documentary Finding Vivian Maier. Maloof says he wanted to piece together all of her archive. So he went to the auction house to find out who bought the other boxes and started to reconstruct a timeline of the photos. All together there was about 100,000 negatives he was able to acquire and approximately 3,000 prints.
