Lost, and Found

This story seems so scripted it could almost be a fairy tale. A photographer spends her life in obscurity shooting the streets of Chicago, dies with 1000 rolls of film still unprocessed, and is discovered later to be a visual savant. Some of Vivian Maier's photos are below. Many others can be seen here, courtesy of John Maloof. Thanks to Matt and David for the tip.
