inspirations

i recently saw the work of vivian maier.  her photographs are so evocative of  the people and events of her time.  the more i saw of her work, the more excited i became!   not much is known about her, she lived in chicago and worked as a nanny and on her day off she always carried a camera.  she has become known as one of the greatest street photographers of the mid-twentieth century. she is an inspiration…
