"We learn the amazing story of Vivian Maier, a Chicago nanny who took more than 100,000 photos during her lifetime but never showed them to anyone. Now she's gone and her photos have been discovered, some say she may rank among the top street photographers of the 20th century."

Here a video article of the fascinating story:

One suggestion about renaming the forum from dSLR Still to just Photography?

Thank you for the link, remarkable for many reasons.
1. A great, long-form video story, rarely seen on local news.
2. The story is compelling and sad and hopeful all at the same time.
3. The total absence of metadata is almost depressing. No one knows who appears in the photos, where they were taken, if there are stories that go with them...

The guys doing the scanning need so much help but how would they get volunteers to do it their way?
How can they get funding to get the hundreds of additional rolls developed and to get at least one print of every single negative?
How would one store 100,000 + prints?
How many other people have similarly huge volumes of superb photography?
Consider the number of photos being taken today. Even if one discards the billions that are useless or flawed, who will ever see the best of them?

FYI: there's a Kickstarter page set up for the documentary: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/800 ... ocumentary

I've contributed.

That's a great story she had great talent, I wonder why she hid it.
