Have you seen the video on Vivian Maier? She was an undiscovered street photographer between the 1950’s and 1990’s and oh my word this has me so intrigued. All that work, everything she saw, everything she created and she didn’t even develop all of it. Can you imagine all those rolls of film?! They are seeing things she never saw through. Forty years of work. I cannot imagine. And her work, just wow. I think she’ll find her place in history and the rest of us will get to watch as the raw beauty unfolds. It makes me wonder who else is out there that doesn’t share their gifts, or talents of any kind, with the world, or anyone for that matter. And what led them to that decision? Insecurity? Confidence? Privacy? Who knows but I find it fascinating for sure.
