photo link

Liv and Biggert and I had a little meeting over brews to talk about his slide show at our MidMoMoNi screening next Thursday. His photos of the Valley Curtain project, which he participated in in '72 are great. Women really did not wear bras back then.

Liv mentioned this street photographer whose work was recently discovered, Vivian Maier. Wow, her photos are heart-poundingly good. I really like the pictures of isolated body parts, like just chunky calves, or a butt oozing out of a bench. The guy who discovered all her negatives is raising money to film a documentary about her. Sadly, she died before he had a chance to talk to her.

I saw that thing about Vivian Maier elsewhere. She's fantastic, right? I hope to see more of her photos soon.
