  • I am so totally going to see this documentary on the twisted legacy of street photographer Vivian Maier—who worked in complete and intentional obscurity (her day job was as a nanny) and whose museum-quality body of work was only discovered decades after her death. And who maybe was a spy? (Kottke)
  • The pretty windows of New York. (Curbed NY)
  • Who says there are no quality single men left out there, ladies? (New York)
  • On a similar note: check out how a Google Earth image got one man busted for cheating. (The Daily What)
  • This video about bullying is so powerful it just about knocks you over with its message—but when one considers the topic, maybe that’s exactly appropriate.

    The Chicago Historical Society had a mini-exhibit of Maier’s work in Chicago and it was fantastic! I cannot wait until the documentary is released. I normally like to see the focus on an artist’s art and not his or her personal life, but as someone who uses photography to work through her shyness (as many believe Maier did), I’m really interested in learning more about her.

    Oh, and I think I’ll remain dateless on March 23rd despite the oh-so tempting ad. Yuck.

      I’m with you on the March 23rd ad – Yuck! They obviously think they’re catches, and the response to the ad won’t help.
