Imagine this : perhaps the most important street photographer of the twentieth century was a nanny who kept everything to herself. Nobody had ever seen her work and she was a complete unknown until the time of her death.
For decades Vivian’s work hid in the shadows until decades later (in 2007), historical hobbyist John Maloof bought a box full of never developed negatives at a local auction for $380.
John began to develop the negatives and it didn’t take long before he realised that these were no ordinary street snapshots from the 50′s and 60′s — these pictures were a lot more then that. Maier’s work is particularly evocative for those who grew up in the 50′s and 60′s because she seemed to stare deep into the soul of the time and preserve the everyday experience of the people. She ventured outside the comfortable homes and picturesque residential neighborhoods of her employers to document all segments of life in and around the big city.
He embarked on a journey to find the legend who took these beautiful pictures and he quickly discovered her name: Vivian Maier.
Before he could find her, John discovered her obituary in the newspaper of 2009 . She slipped on ice, suffered a head injury and never fully recovered. She was 83 years old when she passed away.
Since then, the work of this mysterious and incredibly talented woman has turned the art world upside down. The pictures gained international media attention with exhibitions in London, New York , Los Angeles , Oslo and Hamburg.
Thankyou, sorry for the really late reply (I was Princess Jasmine for those wondering)
Haha I don’t have many personal favourite blogs but fuckyeahmedicalstuff and indifferent cats in amateur porn are favourites! humansofnewyork is a good one, i just started following that but i’ve been aware of it for a long time. I’m really not much help, I just follow a random bunch I like or people I know and forget until they pop up so there’ll be more I’ve forgotten no doubt. Hope that gives you something to start with though, welcome back. xo

A UK study has found that 30 per cent of people believe “coming out” about mental illness would be harder than revealing their sexuality, or problems with alcoholism or bankruptcy.
A study by SANE Australia found that out of those suffering from a mental illness, 49% had no close relationships and 13% of them had not been touched by another person - another human being and there are 7 billion of us - in a year.
Stigmas and attitudes towards mental illness need to change, it’s 2013 for god’s sake.
No. Embrace your sexuality. Your anatomy is nothing to be ashamed of nor disgusted by and women are sexual beings, just the same as men. If it’s what you choose to do with yourself then people should respect that, it’s perfectly natural! There shouldn’t be different standards for different sexes - we’re all equal and each to their own! I’m not one to judge anyway and whether people choose to or not is their own decision - I have bigger things to care about than what other people get upto :) xx
