Here's a great look at Vivian Maier, a nanny, recluse, which also happened to be an amazing street photographer. Her stock pile of undeveloped photos were discovered in a make-shift auction outside of her storage locker.

Self Portrait, New York, 1953, by Vivian Maier. Vivian Dorothea Maier (February 1, 1926 – April 21, 2009) was an American street photographer, who was born in New York City and spent much of her childhood in France. After returning to the United States, she worked for 40 years as a nanny in Chicago, Illinois. During those years, she took more than 100,000 photographs, primarily of/in Chicago. A book of her photographs, Vivian Maier: Street Photographer, was published in 2011.
Vivian Maier was an American street photographer, completely unknown until 2007. Her huge opus of around 100,000 photographs was discovered by historian John Maloof who bought boxes stuffed with negatives from auctioned storage locker. After realizing the quality of photographs, he spent past few years bringing Vivian Maier street photography opus to public via books, website and soon to be released documentary.
A good street photographer must possess many talents: an eye for detail, light, and composition; impeccable timing; a populist or humanitarian outlook; and a tireless ability to constantly shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot and never miss a moment. It is hard enough to find these qualities in trained photographers with the benefit of schooling and mentors and a community of fellow artists and aficionados supporting and rewarding their efforts. It is incredibly rare to find it in someone with no formal training and no network of peers. Yet Vivian Maier is all of these things, a professional nanny, who from the 1950s until the 1990s took over 100,000 photographs worldwide—from France to New York City, to Chicago and dozens of other countries—and yet showed the results to no one. The photos are amazing both for the breadth of the work and for the high quality of the humorous, moving, beautiful, and raw images of all facets of city life in America’s post-war golden age. It wasn’t until realtor and amateur historian John Maloof stumbled upon a box of anonymous negatives in a Chicago auction house in 2007 that any of her marvelous work saw the light of day.

Vivian Maier 1 - The girls in the photograph must be so close to each other, and this captures the innocence of young girls. With the hand around the other one's shoulder, their friendship looks so pure and free. Even the chalk graffiti on the wall behind them adds to the photo.

He used to tell me stories about the wolves in that part of the country.
Chester Arthur Burnett (June 10, 1910 – January 10, 1976), known as Howlin' Wolf, was an influential American blues singer, guitarist and harmonica player. He was born in West Point, Mississippi in an area now known as White Station. Burnett is commonly ranked among the leading performers in electric blues, critic Cub Koda declared, "no one could match Howlin' Wolf for the singular ability to rock the house down to the foundation while simultaneously scaring its patrons out of its wits.
