Photographer - Vivian Maier

August 11, 1954, New York, NY
Vivan Maier took over 150,000 pictures most of which were never developed or seen in her time. Only to be discovered as one of the great photographers of the 20th century after her death. And only after the self-storage space she rented sold the contents of her storage as it went unpaid after her death

What an extraordinary back story her life brings to her work. Nevertheless her art alone speaks itself, for her work really needs none of the art historical discourse cum rhetoric so nessesary to support so much of what tries to pass as art today. 

To me, her work is inspirational .
