Is this old news? Have you all heard about this woman? http://www.vivianmaier.com/ Synopsis: A nanny in NYC was also quietly a serious photography hobbyist with an incredible eye, starting in the 1950's. She quietly took tens of thousands of pictures and boxed up the negatives in her room. She seems to have used a Rolleiflex TLR and a Leica? None of the people who considered themselves her friends had any idea whatsoever about this hobby - they all describe her as being incredibly closed off and secretive. A few years ago someone bought the whole lot of negatives for $300-something at auction, and when they began to scan them, they realized the woman had been a genious (she died in the first decade of the 2000's at 83 years old after a fall on ice.) I'll be totally honest. This is perhaps the most evocative and alluring street photography I have ever seen from one person. Sorry if it's old news, I'd never heard of her before and I'm floored.
