    The link will take you to a video story about Vivian Maier who spent most of her life as as a Chicago nanny, but she was also a prolific street photographer who took over 100,000 photos in her lifetime. Whether or not she will eventually be rated as one of the best street photographers of all time remains to be decided, but it a great story regardless of the final outcome.
