RAW friend Nancy Bray of Harwich, a former Featured Photographer, sent along a video that tells a remarkable story.
It's the tale of Vivian Maier, who worked as a nanny in Chicago, but on her days off, took thousands of photos on the streets of the city. Her stash of undeveloped photos were discovered in a storage locker by a young guy researching a book about Chicago, and he and a friend have made it their mission to scan what he estimates is 100,000 negatives. Experts are calling her work stunning, and have even said her photos may rank with those of Walker Evans.
This video tells the story and shows some of her photos:
