Shooting the past
Bear with this video. If you can get past the introduction it is fascinating. The story of Vivian Maier is not going to reassure the family members of OCA students who are worried that photography can become an obsession, even without the drug that is flickr. The video also touches on a subject we will be returning to shortly, the role of photography as an investment.
Apologies due to Steven Poliokof for the title of this post – it’s just a story – but one of the most moving pieces of drama about the power of photographs I’ve ever seen.
