I found this somewhere: http://vivianmaier.blogspot.com/ Long story short: a storage locker company starts auctioning off items in lockers with delinquent accounts. One of the items up for auction is a metric truckload of negatives, taken by a street photographer in Chicago. The body of work has never been displayed anywhere before, as the photographer was very private. Take a look, and if you've never heard of Eugene Atget, take a look at his stuff, too. What are your thoughts? Good, bad, indifferent?

Only response = best response by default I've loved this style of photography, but I've never had the chutzpah to take pictures of random strangers. It just seems so invasive to me. Granted, she used a Twin Lens Reflex which was held at waist-level and is a lot smaller than an SLR, so maybe that was how she got away with it. Still, beautiful stuff.
