And now, for something completely different

These sorts of stories just fascinate me:
Picture this: quite possibly the most important street photographer of the 20th century was a 1950s children’s nanny who kept herself and never showed a single one of her photographs to anyone. Decades later in 2007, a Chicago real estate agent and historical hobbyist, John Maloof purchased a box of never-seen, never-developed film negatives of an unknown ‘amateur’ photographer for $380 at his local auction house.

Always interesting to get a new glimpse back into the world that was...
