Vivian Maier - an inspiration

An American with a French accent, this woman lived in New York and then Chicago. After a life as a nanny, she died last year in obscurity.

But now her photographs have been discovered. 
I won't waste my time or yours by trying to describe what you can easily see for yourself.

I think this woman's work will be up there with the legends of photography:

Have a look and be inspired.

For me there is the added bonus of revisiting the Chicago of my own youth.
