Thanks R1. I'm not sure why she's not more on the radar.

No one cares because we are in the age of Instagram and Face Book selfies. Suddenly any idiot with a cellphone cam can take a pic.

It is remarkable that she took so many fantastic photos for SO long and went unrecognized.

Well, no one knew she was taking pictures until some years after she died.

Personally, I wish her work was edited a bit more; some not so good photos of hers get shown together with good ones.

I think you mean, it should have been curated a bit more.

I like what I've seen, but I'm sure with 18,000 photos, not every one was a home run.

Actually, this is the sad part - the guy who found her photos looked her up and she had JUST died like a week or two before.

I think the guy who bought the contents of the locker where the photos/negatives were stored sat on them for quite a while - he liked the photos and thought he could imitate the style, so he spent some time trying his own hand in photography.

If he had contacted her upon finding her negatives she would have known they had been saved.

I think it was only a matter of a few weeks, R8.

Anybody get a lesbian vibe from her?
