The undiscovered street photography of Vivian Maier In 2007, Chicago Realtor John Maloof paid $400 at an auction for a storage locker filled with rolls of undeveloped film. He was searching for photos for a book project about his Chicago neighborhood of Portage Park. In a moment straight out of an episode of "Auction Hunters," Maloof discovered a treasure-trove of thousands of negatives that turned out to be from a nanny who took up street photography in her spare time yet kept most of her work hidden.

There are times that he also puts funny story with his artworks. Enjoy and be inspired!

SHIZUKA YOKOMIZO, DEAR STRANGER… Posted on November 16, 2012 by Isabella Cecconi Dear Stranger, I am an artist working on a photographic project which involves people I do not know…I would like to take a photograph of you standing in your front room from the street in the evening. A camera will be set outside the window on the street. If you do not mind being photographed, please stand in the room and look into the camera through the window for 10 minutes on __-__-__ (date and time)…I will take your picture and then leave…we will remain strangers to each other…If you do not want to get involved, please simply draw your curtains to show your refusal…I really hope to see you from the window. The amazing Shizuka Yokomizo’s photo project, came from running around London with huge telephoto lens, trying to glimpse unsuspecting people through the windows of their flats.

GARRY WINOGRAND: “Standing on the Corner – Reflections Upon Garry Winogrand’s Photographic Gaze – Mirror of Self or World? Part II” (1991) Part II (This is the second of a two-part essay on the work of Garry Winogrand.) By Carl Chiarenza Originally Published in IMAGE Magazine: Journal of Photography and Motion Pictures of the International Museum of Photography at George Eastman House, Volume 35, Number 1–2, Spring-Summer, 1992 About looking and watching. That is what so many of Winogrand’s pictures are about—about his looking and watching.

Nobuhiro Nakanishi|中西信洋 The Stripe Drawings are composed of an infinite number of lines drawn in pencil. Drawing these lines at set intervals creates gaps in between, deliberately leaving empty spaces. These lines and spaces create shapes that seem to encroach upon each other, yet co-exist harmoniously. Elegy to a Small Idaho Town: Steve Davis Photographs His Hometown “American Falls seems to be dying a death that is as slow as it is unspectacular.” Steve Davis, 53, is describing the Idaho town in which he grew up. He left when he was 18. LOTTE REIMANN* texts Fast cars, sex and violence, or how I’ve been inspired by "Crash" I guess in my personal lexicon of meaning the car is least of all a means of transportation. I have always been much more attracted by the strength that a car embodies, its speed and danger, the power of these machines. Metal, steel, glass, leather, plastic, oil, and dirt – all agglomerated into one piece, which encloses me – blasting with tremendous speed through the landscape, is hugely exciting, arousing. Equally fascinating are the violent traces remaining of a collision on organic and inorganic material.

A Father Who Creatively Captures His Kids (20 photos) If there was a prize that could be given out to the most creative father, I'd hope that it was awarded to Jason Lee. A wedding photographer by day, he's used to capturing some of the most important moments in a couple's lives. As a longtime fan of Jason's photos on Flickr however, I think the real magic happens when he turns the camera onto his daughters.
