Wow. I wonder if she realized how good she was. Love the perspective she got from being able to hold the camera at her waist or thereabouts.

Fantastic...what a find. With her shots of random people I put her up there with 3 of my favorites, Dorothea Lange, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Walker Evans. :up: :up:

My god, she was good.
Interestingly enough, I read a story a few months back about a group of photographers that went out in Times Square photographing the legs and feet of random people... they were assumed to be perverts, police were called, stories were rushed to the internet.
