I just found this: A young man living in Chicago recently bought a collection of mostly undeveloped film that had been seized from a storage locker with outstanding debt and subsequently sold at auction for $400 dollars. The photos are those of Vivian Maier, born in New York in 1926. For 50 years she photographed the world around her. Most of her thousands of rolls of film were never developed and until now she was completely unknown. Now her work is coming to light, being developed for the very first time. It is incredible. Personally, I think her photography is among the best I have seen. She passed away two years ago. Take a look:
One of the best videos I’ve seen on photography and inspiration, “Celebrate What’s Right with the World” by National Geographic photographer Dewitt Jones:
I met Chris Weeks in Orlando, Florida at the Snap! Orlando photography exhibition. His 3 part video series, Street Photography: Documenting the Human Condition, is a fascinating look at what shooting “street” is all about.
