I watched the documentary on Vivian Maier, the Chicago nanny who left behind a vast, secret hoard of her pictures. Now she's being hailed as one of the best street US street photographers of the 20th century... I don't know about her being one of the best ever but her photo's are wonderful. Her photos take you to that moment in time when she took the picture, telling the story.
Her camera, a Rolleiflex, was operated at chest level, which allowed the photographer to maintain eye contact with the person whose picture she was taking. Many of her strongest and most memorable shots are of people staring straight at her.
