Last week I read the story of Vivian Maier, this nanny took thousands of street photos during the 1950's and 1960's in the US. Her photo's were discovered in 2007, as she was always very private about it.
Check out the Youtube clip for more info about the discovery by John Maloof and her amazing story.
I think her photos are brilliant, Vivian was very talented, she really captures life of those days.
