Vivian Maier (February 1, 1926 – April 21, 2009)
was an American amateur street photographer who grew up in France, and after returning to the U.S., worked for about forty years as a nanny in Chicago. During those years she took about 100,000 photographs, primarily of people and cityscapes most often in Chicago, although she traveled worldwide, taking pictures in each location. (WIKI)

SoLost: William Eggleston Plays the Piano

Eggleston is also a supremely talented pianist. This we know because SoLost was invited by the makers of “Nothing Can Stop Me: The Big Star Story,” a film about legendary cult rockers Big Star (whom Eggleston knew and documented over the years) to tag along for an afternoon with Eggleston at his sister’s home in Memphis. He was planning to play the piano.
