Hey everyone. I've been sick and am just now starting to feel better and get back into things. I saw this movie last night; ( wow! ) " Vivian Maier's " personal story; although sad, lonely, and socially dysfunctional; leaves behind a remarkable body of work as her legacy. And the story of it's discovery and how it unfolded is part of it's mystery. ( Awesome ).

I came across this particular article that immediately caught my attention with it's powerful imagery. But I was even more moved by Adam Hague's aka ( Adam Hassnal Sulaiman ) story of personal transformation. ( Be forewarned that some of the subject matter contained within his portfolio may be disturbing. ) But what I found fascinating was the transcendent nature of the personal viewpoint he is able to establish; and the ability to reference and mix different avenues of perception to evoke a connection within the viewers individual subjective sensibilities that makes his approach so interesting and unique.

Addendum: I also came upon this separate link cross-referenced within this ( Flicker ) stream which in my opinion is a wonderful example of " Street Photography ". Zun Lee's aka ( eudæmon ) poignant personal story and his ability to extract the " Human " element from within the unfolding of it's surrounding realty is extraordinary.

Carmela; ( what a nice thing to say ); you are far too kind. Actually Al deserves a lot of credit for creating this thread. What I like about photography and the visual arts is the ability to communicate a powerful insight in a way like no other.

Here is today's new batch of news related photo items from yahoo:

Thanks for sharing this Al.

I find it interesting that her work is worth so much more than when it was sitting in a storage locker and no one had a clue about this tremendous talent. ( Of course now it doesn't benefit " her " at all does it? ) She lived her life for her art at great cost of personal internal struggle; yet because of these folks the world has benefited from her legacy. ( Life's mystery can be so ironic at times; huh? )

This will be interesting to watch how it plays out; no?

Very nice Carmela.


Isn't it interesting the way an image can communicate or evoke a certain kind of mental and emotional response? And depending on the type it is suggest something completely out of the reality one is currently immersed in?

Here is a photo album link taken from a Leica camera forum I came across of a 1978/79 trip to Paris in black and white. This person's perspective from a earlier era to me conjures up a sort of " reflective timelessness " so often associated with a particular notion I have often imagined of the seductive lure of a leisurely " will-of-the-wisp " adventure while roaming this city in the pursuit of it's discovery.

I have been fascinated lately by the work of photographers Eugene Atget and Man Ray; both very different but connected through an interesting relationship of circumstance. Their influence on photography is immeasurable.

http://www.atgetphotography.com/The-Pho ... n-Ray.html

Also Berenice Abbott should be added to this list as she was an apprentice of Man Ray and was a major force in preservation of Atget's work. But more importantly she became one of the art's most significant photographers in her own right by her work on projects such as " Changing New York ".
